Collaborative Law

There is a relatively new way for divorcing couples to agree an outcome that can avoid the added stress and added costs of going to court. It is called collaborative law.

The parties in the divorce appoint their own solicitors who arrange face to face negotiations in an effort to make the parties work together or "collaborate" to find a settlement they are both happy with.

Collaborative law sets out to to be more respectful and less confrontational than the traditional court process. Through the process the couple hopefully maintain reasonably  amicable relationships that helps relatives, friends and children. Avoiding court costs makes the actual divorce less expensive in the long run and as a couple you retain some control and are not fully at the mercy of a judge.

If you decide to follow a collaborative law route to divorce then consulting the best lawyer you can find is essential, it ensures an advantageous negotiating position and the way to an agreeable outcome.
