a scenario where two family solicitors representing a husband and a
wife agree not to go to court but rather to pursue together a negotiating
style that gives the husband and wife a responsibility for their
practice is considered appropriate for the following issues :-
about separation and divorce
- housing and
and contact arrangements
client needs to apport a qualified collaborative solicitor (see "Find
a Practice") for the purpose of advising, negotiating and
assisting in problem solving.
valuable feature of the process is its ability to allow clients,
where appropriate, to benefit on a joint basis from the participation
of other professionals such as an independent financial advisor
or accountant, a counsellor or child development specialist.
