Collaborative Family Law

Collaborative family law is a form of negotiation in which the partners address their respective needs and expectations with less emphasis on their rights and obligations.

Collaborative family law lawyers generally specialize in this field.

You must agree in advance and in writing to the terms of a collaborative negotiation. If the matter is not resolved through the collaborative process, each partner must retain new counsel because the collaborative lawyers will not go to court.

Other professionals such as parenting co-ordinators, valuators, and actuaries can be of assistance in collaborative negotiations.
