What is Collaborative Family Law?
Collaborative family law is a process where everyone agrees to work together (to collaborate) to create acceptable solutions that work well for both parties, and without going to court. In the collaborative approach:
- Both parties agree to stay out of court
- The emphasis is on creating solutions that address the values and goals of both parties and their children
- The sole objective is to reach an efficient, fair, comprehensive settlement of all issues.
We are a group of independent lawyers and helping professionals who, although not in partnership, work together in cases that are suitable for the collaborative process and without going to court.
