Collaborative law provides an opportunity for people in conflict to create the best possible outcome for them. Using a team model, the process offers couples a safe and structured environment in which to work together to resolve their dispute. The collaborative process can help couples to preserve and promote the best portions of their relationship as they dissolve their union, enabling them to create their own settlement and move forward with the rest of their lives.
Heated battles and contested legal proceedings are no longer the only options. There are many choices available today for individuals and families to address the issues arising from their separation, including the collaborative model, mediation and the kitchen-table approach.
