Collaborative lawyers are licensed and regulated members of the legal profession. They are your advocates and will work with you and your spouse to negotiate a resolution of your family related issues including custody and access, child and spousal support and division of family property.
Collaborative lawyers will provide guidance and support as problem-solvers and focus on the interests of the participants. At the conclusion of the process, the lawyers will jointly draft a Separation Agreement with all of the agreed upon terms.
Choosing a lawyer is a matter of personal preference. In deciding who will represent you, consider factors such as experience, personality, and special expertise.
