Collaborative Law

 

Collaborative Law is not the same as mediation. Collaborative Law allows you to talk through the issues that you and your partner have at a series of meetings with you, your former partner and each of your collaboratively trained lawyers. The process enables you and your partner to control what is discussed and the speed of those discussions at a series of face to face meetings. It is possible to discuss any aspect of your relationship breakdown for example children issues, finances, the divorce or hug parathion agreement. You will have the opportunity to work with an independent financial advisor, family consultant, a child specialist or an accountant, who will provide you with specialist help if you need it. All these professionals will collectively make up your collaborative team. Additionally the collaborative process can be very effective in negotiating pre-nuptial agreements. The key thing to remember with the collaborative process is that you will be asked to sign an agreement confirming that you will not go to Court except when documents are agreed.

Jo Hawkins, Loraine Davenport, Annabel Hayward, Stacey St Clair and our Assistant Solicitor Rachel Lander are all trained Collaborative lawyers committed to the benefits that this process can offer clients.
