Miscellaneous – Collaborative Process

Certain cases are better suited to be handled through a collaborative process, which is a non-adversarial and non-litigious manner of resolving family law cases.  From the very inception of the process, the parties contractually agree that the matter will not be brought before the court.  However, if the one or both parties change their mind and seek the court’s assistance, both parties must withdraw from the collaborative process.  Furthermore, the lawyers for both sides will not be allowed to represent the parties in the upcoming litigation.
