A Peaceful Alternative to Resolving Disputes
Collaborative Process is unique and beneficial. It is designed to help parties reach an agreement that is tailored to the specific needs of all persons involved. It alleviates the anxiety and stress of lengthy, uncertain and expensive litigation (the “court battle” process).
Collaborative Practice is very popular in family law because there is no court appearance and no trial. With the help of your own specially-trained lawyer, you and your spouse/partner make all decisions together. The goal of collaboration is to reach a settlement that is acceptable to both parties. You have more control over the outcome of your dispute in a collaborative setting than in a courtroom, where the judge will have the final say.
Collaborative Practice is also becoming useful in business, and civil law matters.
