A New Way to Separate - Together

Some separation processes can be difficult, but it is also common for parties to genuinely want to work cooperatively to develop a separation solution that balances everyone’s best interests. Collaborative practice provides an integrated method of dispute resolution where you and your former partner agree that each of you, your legal representatives and other relevant advisors – such as child counsellors and financial advisors – have an equal seat at the table, to negotiate such a solution.

How Does Mediation and Collaborative Law Differ?

Whilst mediation and collaborative practice are similar in a number of ways, in particular, each seeking to resolve disputes without litigation, there are some differences. The most notable being that as a mediator is a neutral party, they maintain a balanced approach, while assisting clients to make up their own decisions. They do not advocate for any one of you. Conversely, collaborative lawyers act or advocate for each of their respective clients.



Unlike mediation or arbitration, collaborative law practice does not involve a third-party to facilitate the negotiations – it is a group coming together, each with their own expertise. It also requires you and your former partner to agree – in good faith – not to go to Court and not threaten to use the Court process as a means of coercing the other to agree.
