The Collaborative Process
Family law disputes often cause considerable pain and anguish for those involved. Collaborative law is a relatively new approach to dealing with them, which aims to resolve matters in an amicable and non-adversarial way. At Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice we support progressive measures like collaborative law that lead to more amicable outcomes.
Our team includes lawyers with many years of experience in collaborative law. Thea Hughes, director in the firm, was one of the first lawyers in Wales trained in collaborative law and is a founding member of Collaborative Lawyers in Wales.
How collaborative law works
Rather than asking a lawyer to fight it out on your behalf, under a collaborative law process you would instruct one of our specially trained collaborative lawyers. They will sit down at the table with all the parties involved to work together on a positive solution.
This approach might not be for everyone, but if a separating couple are on relatively good terms and wish to remain friends, then collaborative law is an excellent way of resolving financial and other issues during a divorce or a separation. It can bring many benefits, particularly if there are children involved.
If you think collaborative law might help you in your situation, or to find out more about how it works, please contact us today.
