Collaborative divorce FAQs

What does collaborative divorce mean?

Collaborative means working together but in the context of family law, it means more.  Collaborative law is a particular way of both parties and their solicitors (who must be specially trained in Collaborative law) working together towards a resolution of points of dispute between them.  It is an alternative to going to court, and couples who choose collaborative divorce make a commitment not to go to court.

How does collaborative divorce work?

Collaborative divorce begins with you, your partner and your respective solicitors signing a 'participation agreement’. A participation agreement is a legally binding document to say that you will all work together and come to a final agreement on your divorce. Your solicitors will work as a team to guide you through discussions (called four-way meetings), giving you advice, making suggestions, testing options and steering you towards an agreement. Other expert advisers might also be able to attend the meeting to give extra assistance.
