Collaborative Law

Collaborative law is a fundamentally different approach to resolving family disputes arising from divorce and separation. Issues are discussed in round table four way meetings with clients and lawyers present. It focuses on interests not positions and what is fair for each member of the family. It avoids going to court about money or children and polarising your positions.

Collaborative Law works by:

  • Setting out and defining your objectives and how to achieve them with your collaborative lawyer.
  • Avoiding lengthy correspondence and court documents other than those agreed by the parties.
  • Discussing matters round a table with lawyers present helping you to find a fair solution for all.

If you want to the best for your family even after divorce particularly where children are involved, collaborative law may be for you.

Michael Dyer trained as a collaborative lawyer with Resolution in 2007 and is an enthusiast for the process in the right circumstances. It can work for any type of case from the modest assets to complex and high net worth couples including business assets provided the parties agree to work together. It is certainly cheaper than proceeding to a fully contested final court hearing.
