Collaborative Law

Separation can be a stressful experience especially where children are involved. Collaborative Family Law is a fairly new method of dispute resolution in Scottish Family Law. It allows everyone involved to work together with their solicitors to create a solution tailored to their needs and those of their family.

Collaborative Law presents opportunities for a swift resolution and our extensive experience in this field has shown the positive results that can be achieved when a swift resolution is found during a particularly difficult time.

The process involves discussion and negotiation taking place in “4-way” meetings with both parties’ solicitors present and correspondence is kept to a minimum. In Collaborative Law, all parties agree to negotiate in good faith in order to resolve issues amicably without the threat of court action. This method of resolution is open to any couple separating who wish to avoid lengthy disputes.

Our team have had extensive training in the practice of Collaborative Law and can offer a sympathetic but pragmatic approach to help minimise the effects of separation at the time and in the future.

Fiona Coutts  Faye Donald and Susan Purvis are all experienced in the Collaborative process having practised in this field for a number of years.

To find out how the Collaborative process could help you reach an amicable separation, call our Family Law team.
