Collaborative Practice is growing in Toronto!
Collaborative Practice is an out-of-court settlement process that strives to preserve the emotional and financial resources of the family. This non-adversarial approach is mutually respectful and solutions-oriented. Spouses work together on the issues with their lawyers present for guidance and advice. In addition, the couple can draw upon neutral experts to help them, such as child specialists, family professionals and financial specialists.
Collaborative Practice Toronto supports the special training required so that its members can expertly help their clients to:
- resolve family law disputes without going to court or threatening to go to court,
- remain focused on the best interests of children,
- ensure full and complete disclosure of all important information,
- negotiate in a principled, dignified and respectful manner,
- explore as many options for settlement as possible, and
- reach creative resolutions that best address the goals and priorities of the family.
The collaborative process minimizes the pain of separation and divorce, and enhances the prospects for healthy outcomes for all family members. It keeps the divorce transition constructive and respectful, and supports better communication skills for co-parenting and problem-solving in the future.
Collaborative Practice is also helpful in resolving civil and estates disputes.
