| What Is Collabrative law?
Collaborative is an adjective described as
In family law this involves, lawyers instructed by both parties, the parties themselves and can also involve financial advisors and relationship therapists. It is a team of collaboratively trained professionals who help the parties meet and reach agreement on issues following the breakdown of the relationship in relation to finances and children. It is unique, in that all the parties, commit to stay in the process until an agreement is reached without involving the court.
The goals are set out by the parties in an anchor statement. The terms of the contract to work together, are set out in the participation agreement. The court’s involvement is limited to making orders in the terms of the agreement reached. The professionals are all members of Resolution and have undergone training in the collaborative process with Resolution.
The benefits can include less cost, less animosity and less time to resolve issues and of course all meetings are held privately, usually in an office space or by video.
