Some of our solicitors are also trained in Collaborative Practice, an alternative dispute resolution process to help parties resolve their differences in an amicable and respectful manner, without engaging in protracted litigation. The Collaborative Practice process allows the parties to take control of the negotiations and reach an outcome that is specifically tailored to their children's and their own needs and interests.
