For separating couples

Collaborative family law offers a viable and constructive alternative to going through the court system.

Choosing collaborative law means gives you access to advice and support from specially trained and experienced family lawyers and other professionals who are committed to a non-adversarial approach to resolving all of the issues that arise from your separation or divorce.
Those lawyers will be by your side at every step of the way, helping you and your former partner reach the decisions that are right for you. You set the pace, you set the agenda, and your lawyers are there to keep things on track and provide the advice, guidance and support you need to bind the decisions you make, together.

Your lawyers can also bring in other professionals - such as financial advisers, accountants, coaches or counsellors trained in the collaborative process - to provide information,guidance and support in specific areas.
People who have been through the collaborative process say that it is a far more constructive, positive and dignified approach, which paves the way for a positive future for you and your family.
Many of our members offer a free, no-obligation discussion, where they will talk you through the options available for resolving the issues you face. You can download our leaflet here, find out more about how the process works, or click here to find a collaborative family lawyer in your area.
