Collaborative Law

Under the collaborative law process, each person is represented by their collaboratively trained lawyer and you and your lawyers all meet together to work things out face to face.

The main difference between collaborative law and the traditional process is that you sign an agreement that commits you to try to resolve the issues without going to Court.  Negotiations take place face to face instead of through letters and telephone calls.  Once an agreement is reached, which takes between 2 to 5 meetings generally, the lawyers put the agreement into effect obtaining a Court Order where necessary. 

Collaborative law differs from mediation because each person is separately represented by their own lawyer who is there to advise them about what is in their best interests, unlike a mediator whose role is impartial and will not give advice, only information.
