why should I use collaborative lawyers?

What can seem tricky to some couples is the idea that they both have a collaborative lawyer – because it only works if both of you are using collaborative lawyers – all sitting around working together to find the best solutions.  But this is what happens in mediation too so it is a very good way to resolve or avoid any potential conflict.

 

Another advantage is that you can include other professionals in the sessions.  I know of a couple who resolved their divorce disputes by each having a divorce coach in the sessions with them for emotional support.  Mediators and financial advisors can also be included for their specialist knowledge and skills.

 

The down side is that this can all add up in the costs.  However, the likelihood of staying out of court because of finding a non-adversarial route through a potentially contentious divorce, can make such initial outgoings an investment.

Mediation Fact Sheet   Well it’s not the same as ‘meditation’ (sitting quietly and connecting to your inner being) and it’s also nothing to do with ‘getting back together’.
