Collaborative Law

The ending of a marriage or relationship is usually fraught with difficulties, particularly at a time when emotions are running high. If you are seeking to divorce or separate without proceeding down the traditional route of going to court then our collaborative law solicitor may be able to help you.

Traditionally, when a relationship breaks down, each person will take independent advice from a specialist family lawyer and, through their lawyers, attempt to reach agreement on how best to settle their differences.  If they are unable to do so, it is left to the Family Courts to decide which can cause uncertainty and conflict.

Collaborative Law enables each person, with their lawyers present, to have face-to-face meetings in order to resolve the issues with a commitment to avoid litigation and in a non-confrontational and constructive manner.

The benefits of Collaborative Law are:

  • You each have your own independent legal advisor.

  • You are in control without the prospect of Court proceedings hanging over you.

  • You set the agenda and talk about the things that matter most to you and your family.

  • You set the pace and you are not governed by Court dates and appearances.

  • You maintain contact with your former partner which gives you the best chance of understanding each other and finding the right solutions.

  • If children are involved, you will both remain parents and it will help your children to cope better with the separation if they see that you are working things out together.

  • Most importantly, the key decisions you make about your future are yours.  They are not made in a courtroom.

 

Our collaborative law solicitor can use all of her experience in obtaining the best solution for you with cost effective and transparent fees for our services – allowing you to budget during this stressful time.

 

Our Resolution trained collaborative law specialist, Tazeen Khaliq, is on both the Resolution and Family Law Advanced Panels.  She will be pleased to assist you in choosing the right legal course of action for your circumstances.
