What is Collaborative Family Law?
Collaborative Family Law is a process for working out the legal issues involved in a separation, without going to court.
How Does It Work?
You and your spouse each retain a Collaborative Lawyer, from our MEET OUR LAWYERS page. Once retained a meeting is scheduled to begin work together as a team to resolve the issues of your separation such as property division, custody access, and support.
The process is very different from the traditional adversarial legal approach, where the parties battle it out through their lawyers. Collaborative Family Law (often referred to as "CFL") is a cooperative process where the emphasis is on reaching solutions that address the goals of both parties, and meet the needs of the children.
