A group of lawyers in Scotland offering collaborative law as an alternative from the conventional way to divorce.
Collaborative law is an alternative from the conventional way to divorce intended for those couples who wish to find sensible solutions in a non confrontational way. Each party has a lawyer trained in collaborative law and they all work together to discuss the terms of the separation which are tailored to suit their priorities and needs. The aim is to provide an effective forum for resolving issues in a fashion that does the least damage to long term family relationships.
One feature is it is possible to involve other professionals such as counsellors, financial advisor or accountants. Collaborative law may be used to resolve any issue that would traditionally involve solicitors or the courts, the difference being that everyone involved in process agrees not to go to court and should that happen both lawyers are disqualified from any further involvement.
