Collaborative Work

The collaborative approach is a fundamental change in the way family law cases are dealt with

Traditionally when couples separate they each take independent advice from their specialist solicitors.  They work with their solicitor to try and reach an agreement as to how to settle their differences.  In many cases with the help of Resolution solicitors couples can reach an agreement as to, for example, the amount of contact the children have with each parent and the division of the marital assets.  In cases where the couples cannot reach an agreement it is then left to the family courts to make decisions on their behalf.

An alternative is for the couples to sit down with their respective specialist family solicitors in the same room, face to face, to discuss the issues and negotiate a solution.  This is how Collaborative Family Law works but it can only be successful if the parties have a genuine desire for it to work and if the parties are open and honest with each other.  By committing to the Collaborative Family Law approach the couple are agreeing that a resolution will be found without going to court.

You still benefit from having your own independent legal advisor, but you are in control without the threat of court proceedings hanging over you.

The collaborative approach is a fundamental change in the way that family law cases are dealt with and an alternative way of resolving the issues which arise when a relationship breaks down.
