The goal of Collaborative Law is much like mediation. The goal is to enable parties involved each represented by a lawyer, to resolve their differences in a confidential setting using techniques committed to reach a mutually acceptable resolution.
The participants all sign a Participation Agreement where they agree to voluntarily disclose all information and to cooperatively resolve all issues outside of litigation. Settlement is accomplished through informal discussions, settlement conferences, mediations and other methods other than litigation. Experts are used to facilitate the process including forensic accountant and therapist.
If a settlement cannot be reached, both lawyers must withdraw from the case. Collaborative Family Lawyers work toward settling your case rather than preparing for and conducting a trial, that may cause savings, both financial and emotional, to you and your family.
