What is a Collaborative Lawyer
Although the Collaborative process is an alternative to resolving family law issues without going to court, the settlement reached is still a legal agreement. As such, it is essential that you have advice from an experienced family law lawyer on all legal issues relating to children, such as custody, guardianship, access and support, as well as on all issues relating to spousal support and division of property.
Collaborative Lawyers have several years of experience in dealing with family law issues, and they have been trained and certified as mediators by the Law Society of BC. In addition, they have taken specialized training in Collaborative Law.
Applying their legal knowledge and their cutting-edge negotiation skills, the Collaborative Lawyers assist you and your spouse or partner in reaching constructive solutions that address your interests and those of your children.
