Why Avoid Court?
  • You control the process and the outcome, not the lawyers or the courts

  • You avoid devastating court battles which can be draining both emotionally and financially

  • You are protecting your children from the negative effects of going to court where any goodwill is soon crushed

  • A great deal of the time, money and energy spent on court application and trial preparation, is instead directed to developing solutions and problem solving

  • Clients and collaborative lawyers work together as members of the settlement team, rather than working against each other as "opposing parties"
The result is a fair settlement that addresses the needs and concerns of both you and your spouse.
