Collaborative Practice is for those who are confronting divorce or separation and want to reach solutions in an amicable way that meets the needs of the entire family.
Divorce is life changing and how you choose to divorce may have great significance on what follows.
It is all too common in the traditional approach to find that the threat of court polarises attitudes and sometimes accentuates the differences
The Collaborative philosophy is to help people to take control of what is happening in their lives so that they can find a commonsense way to resolve complex family problems with dignity and respect.
In Collaborative Practice, couples, their lawyers and other professionals work together in round table meetings to negotiate agreements to resolve financial and other issues without the involvement of the courts.
