Non-contentious resolution

Although our member family lawyers understand that getting clients the best possible result may sometimes require action through the courts, they also recognise that negotiation and consensus are frequently the best way to resolve separation legal disputes, particularly if there are the needs of children to consider. This may be achieved through the use of a family mediation service – a legal requirement in most separation disputes – or via a collaborative law process.

Collaborative law

Numerous studies have proven collaborative law to be an effective and efficient way of gaining resolution where there is disagreement regarding separation.

Collaborative lawyers work with the parties to a separation to amicably resolve disputes while maintaining the best interests of all family members, particularly children.

The process is useful because it avoids the pressure and cost of the court setting while also providing clear outcomes and guidance.
