What is Collaborative Family Law?

Separation and divorce can put an immense strain on anybody, especially when children are involved. The Collaborative approach is fundamentally changing the way people think about family law. For couples who genuinely seek a fair solution, and want to minimise the pain of family breakdown, it may offer the very best way ahead.

How does it work?

Collaborative lawyers sign an agreement with you which disqualifies them from representing you in court if the collaborative process breaks down. This means they are absolutley committed to helping you find the best solutions by agreement, rather than through the Courts.

So why is it successful?

You will benefit from having your own independent legal adviser. But, You are in control, without the threat of court proceedings hanging over you.
You set the agenda, so you talk about the things that matter most to you and your family.
You set the pace - because you are not governed by court dates and appearances.
You maintain contact with your former partner. That way, you have the best chance of understanding each other and finding the right solutions.

Remember, If children are involved, you will both remain parents as it will help your children to cope better with your separation if they see that you are working things out together.

Most importantly, the key decisions you make about your future are yours - they are not made by a stranger in a courtroom.

The North Oxfordshire Collaborative Family Lawers group was launched officially in December 2008 and comprises a group of like minded experienced family lawyers who are fully committed to this new approach. We meet monthly to exchange ideas and discuss this way of dealing with matters. We welcome guests from other Collaborative Law groups and other experts who have trained with Resolution for this work.
