Collaborative Family Law is a different way of approaching the resolution process of family law matters. It aims to promote the resolution of disputes and keep the matter outside of the court system.
It is a voluntary process where parties agree to opt into the Collaborative process and keep out of Court. The lawyers sign an agreement whereby they will agree to not represent the clients in court, even if the matter breaks down and resolution cannot be achieved by agreement.
This does not mean that the parties cannot seek judicial determination, however, the lawyers enter the process on the basis that they will not represent the client in court.
Collaborative resolution of family law matters opens the box to allow “outside of the box” approaches to resolution of family law matters.
