What Does York Collaborative Family Law Group Do?

Collaborative Family Law Practice is a new way for divorcing or separating couples to work with trained professionals to resolve disputes respectfully, without going to court to settle.

The main elements of Collaborative Practice are set out in a contract called a Participation Agreement, which both the lawyers and the clients sign.

It allows the couple and their Collaborative Lawyers to find a solution together, in a series of 'four-way' meetings, maintaining responsibility, dignity, and good protective and supportive family relationships, with control for both parties over their futures. The couple receive legal advice and support outside of the four-way meeting from their respective Collaborative Lawyers.

We work in the Collaborative Law process, with our clients and colleagues, using the expertise and assistance of professionals from other disciplines, such as Independent Financial Advisers, accountants and life coaches.

Utilising their skills in client representation, negotiation and problem-solving, Collaborative Family Lawyers help their clients shape a fair agreement.
