My relationship with my partner has broken down but we agree that we want to sort out financial matters as amicably as possible. I have heard of Collaborative Law and think this looks like an amicable and less costly option for us. Can you tell me more?
Collaborative law is a less adversarial approach to dealing with the unresolved issues, such as financial settlement, following the breakdown of a relationship.
The approach is to deal with issues around the table and not to go to court. The client is more in control of the process, rather than the Court and it can be less costly and more effective than the traditional method of court proceedings.
