What is collaborative law?

Collaborative law is a process for people to sort out their problems on relationship breakdown. Each of you appoints your own lawyer, but instead of conducting negotiations by letter or over the telephone, the discussions take place over a series of “four way meetings”.

Four way meetings involve both of you and each of your collaborative lawyers. Your collaborative lawyer will be there with you throughout the process to give you support and advice as you go along.
