Many people need support to deal with the conflicts that arise during family law matters. Some of your options include:

  • Collaborative Practice: In Collaborative Practice, each party works with their own collaborative law lawyer and collaborative professionals. In a series of meetings, attended by all parties and their lawyers, everyone works together to resolve the conflict in a way that allows parties to have control over the outcome. The parties’ lawyers advise their clients and guide them through the process. Parties create solutions that best meet their needs.
  • Mediation: Mediation is a process to resolve conflict between two or more parties. The process is confidential and anything said in mediation can’t be used against parties later. Mediation involves you, the other person(s) and a mediator who is neutral. The mediator helps the parties to find a solution by examining underlying issues and finding common ground.
