The collaborative law process is a new way of settling family law issues. It is oftentimes the best way to resolve a family law matter, especially when the future of your children is involved. All family issues— divorce, custody, child access and visitation, property settlement, relocation, separation agreements, to name a few, can be resolved through the collaborative law process. Collaborative law is a process designed for negotiation, not for litigation. There is no formal discovery, motions or trial.
