For couples going through a separation, collaborative law can offer a way of navigating the process without involving the court.
Specialist collaborative family law solicitors in Norwich & Norfolk.
A separation can have many potential points of contention, but it doesn’t have to involve the courts. Collaborative law is a way for separating couples to work out their differences in an amicable way, and come to an agreement on child custody, visitation rights, financial arrangements, and other matters. For many, especially couples with children, this provides an opportunity to minimise the disruption and upheaval a separation can have on a family. If you want to separate using the collaborative law process, we’re ready to help you get started.
Collaborative law is an alternative way for couples to separate without needing to take their disputes and disagreements to court. With the help of each party’s legal representative, they will engage in a series of four way meetings to have constructive discussions and determine the best solution for them and their family.
To work effectively, collaborative law requires clients to be honest, open, and fully commit to the process. If it breaks down, both parties may need to start afresh with traditional negotiations or court proceedings, which can be much more disruptive and upsetting for children. For more information about the process and how it can work for you, don’t hesitate to contact us today.
To undertake a collaborative divorce, both parties sign a collaborative agreement setting out that neither of them will go to court at any point for their financial and child care arrangements. Then, they meet regularly as the divorce is proceeding with trained collaborative solicitors. The intention of these meetings is to discuss all aspects of their separation including child custody, visitation rights, and finances until they reach an agreement that satisfies both.
Every case involving collaborative law is unique. The time it takes to reach an agreement can vary, and individual circumstances will play a major role. If you want to find out more about the process, the best thing to do is get in touch with a member of our team and talk through your circumstances in more detail. Then, we can recommend the best next steps and provide transparent guidance on the likely costs.
