By working with a team of legal professionals to address the wishes of all parties involved, collaborative family law aims to maintain an atmosphere of open communication so it may be possible to achieve outcomes that work well for all parties involved.
The collaborative family law process includes:
- Resolving disputes by tailoring the dispute process to the needs of all parties involved.
- Giving professional legal representation on both sides a joint mandate that empowers clients to create the best possible agreement under their own terms.
- The use of mediation, traditional litigation and collaborative family law to work towards resolution.
- Giving equal weight to the process and the outcome. Both parties must seek to understand and be understood.
Benefits of collaborative family law include:
- Using a team approach with all parties involved, including financial advisors and legal teams on both sides.
- The understanding that no legal proceedings will be started during the collaborative family law process. Everyone must work together to find an acceptable solution.
- The best possible outcomes are achieved when the needs and interests of both parties are met. Clients are not necessarily expected to agree, but will accept that an open mind and perspective are the best way to create a solution.
- A non-adversarial approach to information exchange and collaborative negotiations that take into consideration all available options.
- All parties are informed of their legal rights; however, resolutions do not have to be limited to rules dictated by law.
