Collaborative law is a refreshingly new approach to family law in Australia. It
is the process of negotiating a settlement agreement without going to go to court.
We find collaborative law removes the hostility from family law disputes and focuses on mutual respect and cooperative problem solving.
During this process, collaborative family lawyers and collaborative family dispute counsellor’s work together to help clients deal with this highly emotional and challenging time of their life. They work together to protect the best interests of both clients and their children and work together to find a fair solution following a separation.
Collaborative law allows couples access to the expertise of child specialists, counsellors, accountants and financial advisers who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the process. Having access to these professionals ensures that each party’s interests are cared for enabling their lawyers to concentrate on resolving a fair settlement.
Collaborative family law keeps you in control of the decision-making process following separation. It allows you to resolve the issues in a way that best suits you and your family. It aims to reduce the conflict between separating couples by negotiating a mutually satisfactory outcome. Many clients find that this leads to a more harmonious relationship after separation – which is important when children are involved and on-going contact is necessary in order to co-parent effectively.
We offer separating couples an opportunity to work together to find a fair solution to the issues they face during a relationship breakdown – a solution that is uniquely tailored to fit their life and their family. Separation is difficult for everyone, but it can be managed in a constructive and dignified way without the intervention of the court.
We can help you and your partner achieve a solution that’s right for your family.
