The Collaborative Advtange

Lesley Taafe


Collaborative Practice, including Collaborative Law and interdisciplinary Collaborative Divorce, is a way for you to resolve disputes respectfully without going to court.
The heart of Collaborative Practice or Collaborative Divorce is to offer you and your spouse or partner the support, protection, and guidance of your own lawyers without going to court. Additionally, Collaborative Practice allows you the benefit of child and financial specialists, family professionals, and other experts all working together on your team.
The Collaborative approach only works if both parties set aside their basic acrimonies and resentment, disclose all relevant information, put the children’s needs first and look for mutually acceptable solutions. Both parties must have an open mind and be prepared to give a little.
Once the professional team is assembled, all participants are to sign a Participation Agreement which sets out what’s expected from everyone and the rules of conduct. Negotiations start over a series of settlement meetings where information is exchanged and all options considered.
Unlike going to court where a judge may listen to both sides and then hand down a decision which neither party may like. In Family Law the Collaborative approach entails mutual problem solving by all the parties which in turn leads to the final separation agreement.
