Couples who choose the collaborative approach want skilled help from their solicitors throughout the process. Collaborative law involves working with your lawyers to find the best answers for your family as you each go your separate ways.
You need to accept the commitments
- A real determination that you will reach a solution together and that you will not allow a Judge to decide your family’s future in the courtroom.
- A real willingness to disclose information fully and honestly to each other.
Collaborative lawyers sign an agreement with you which disqualifies them from representing you at court if the process breaks down. That means they are absolutely committed to helping you find the best solution by agreement not through destructive conflict.
