Collaborative Family Law is not for every client, or indeed every lawyer, but it is worth considering if some of the following are important to you:
· You want a dignified, non-aggressive resolution of the issues.
· You and your partner have children and wish to reach a resolution by agreements with their needs and interests being your priority.
· You do not wish to incur the costs and animosity generated by court proceedings.
· You would like to keep open, good relations with your partner in the future.
· You and your partner have extended family and a number of friends, to whom you would both wish to remain in contact in the future.
· You value retaining control over decisions about your financial arrangements or arrangements in relation to the children, but with advice from experts.
· You do not wish to 'hand over' decision making to either your lawyer or to a court.
· Your main aim in the process is not to 'seek revenge' on your partner.
· You need the assistance of a lawyer to help you negotiate in face-to-face meetings.
