Collaborative law is a dispute resolution approach where both lawyers and both clients, sometimes with other neutral professionals, work together to reach a settlement.

Unlike mediation, the collaborative process requires that you agree to:

  • Not to go to court (until the end of the process, and then you may not use the lawyer who represented you in the collaborative process);
  • Be honest in the process and respect the other party.

The outcome may not be in accordance with the principles in the Family Law Act but rather one that meets the interests of both parties and their children. The outcome can be documented as a legally enforceable agreement.
