Ten Reasons Why You Should Choose the Collaborative Law Process


1 – Collaborative law is your solution:-
Geared to what you want to achieve, not what the lawyers say or what the Judge imposes.

2 – Nothing is off limits:-
You agree the Agenda. Discussions can take place about everything including the family pets and of course the children, ensuring cooperative joint parenting.

3 – Private:-
Your financial details are not passed around the County Court or aired in a hearing where the press can be present.

4 – Court is out of the question:-
Everyone signs up to an agreement not to go to Court.

5 – No more letters:-
When things are written in black and white they are more permanent.

6 – Mutual respect and improved communication:-
Discussions can be emotional but that’s ok. Feelings can be expressed, acknowledged and often that is what is needed to enable you to concentrate on practical issues. Lawyers advise you both directly in the meetings so everything is transparent.

7 – Tailor made advice:-
Available in the meetings, from the lawyers, family consultants and independent financial advisors.

8 – You decide the pace:-
You decide when meetings take place which often speeds up the process and fits into your schedule.

9 – Direct control and involvement:-
It is your process and you drive it forward. You and your partner deal with issues of your choosing supported by your collaborative lawyers.

10 – Proportionate costs and swift resolution:-
Disclosure and other Court procedures can be tailored to avoid completing lengthy Court forms, saving costs and time.
