How does Collaborative Family Law work

Collaborative Family Law
  • Stage 1: Couples hire a Collaborative Lawyer whose chief purpose is to negotiate, not litigate.

  • Stage 2: The spouses sign an agreement which states they agree to each hire different lawyers should they need to enter into litigation. This helps show each spouse’s commitment to negotiating, and negates the financial incentives for the lawyer to pursue drawn-out litigation.

  • Stage 3: Both parties agree to disclose all information that’s relevant to their case and to always treat the other respectfully. They also commit to jointly engage the services of any experts required and to ensure each of their needs is fairly heard and dealt with.

  • Stage 4: The couple’s lawyers commit to negotiating, not litigating and to maintain the honesty and integrity of the proceedings.

  • Stage 4: The couple’s lawyers commit to negotiating, not litigating and to maintain the honesty and integrity of the proceedings.
