Collaborative family lawyers
Expertly trained to settle divorce disputes
The collaborative family law process requires each person to appoint a collaboratively trained lawyer. You, your partner and your lawyers meet to discuss things face to face, rather than the traditional route which involves the exchange of correspondence.
Our collaborative lawyers are all fully trained to use this modern method of approaching divorce or separation without involving the courts. Select a lawyer and contact them directly or request a call and we will arrange for a relevantly qualified lawyer to make contact.
