You get to choose the team that will work with you as your collaborator. The team can include two lawyers along with one or more mental health professionals and financial neutrals. The team members need to belong to a recognized provincial organization and must have taken extra training in mediation, negotiation, and conflict dynamics. They should be committed to finding answers without going to the court.
Collaborative family law is based on meetings involving the spouses and their lawyers, aimed at identifying what can be agreed upon, what has to be solved, and what solutions can meet your needs. Collaborative family lawyers work with rather than against each other to solve questions and meet your concerns rather than looking for ways to heighten the conflict and emotional/financial costs.
