If you are trying to avoid the threat of going to court after your separation and want to stay in the “driver’s seat” then Collaborative practice may just be the right avenue for you to explore to reach a successful outcome.
Collaborative practice in family law involves a series of conversations convened by a neutral coach with your family lawyer present. You commit to enter into discussions in good faith and stay out of the court system. It’s a relaxed and supportive process and one which embodies a conversation-style of resolution where there is no ‘threat’ of Court looming over your heads as you negotiate and where you are both committed to negotiating in good faith. It also enables parties to feel empowered and as though they have a voice that is listened to by their partner.
This pledge to the process is what ensures the integrity of the matter and assists in reaching effective and often very tailored solutions to couples following a separation.
We have family & divorce lawyers trained in collaborative practice available to assist you to walk through this process if you are interested; collaborative practice may be right for you. Contact us at Doolan Wagner for an obligation free consultation to discuss whether it will work in your case.
