Collaborative practice allows the clients to be their own architects when determining what their post-separation lives will look like. As a client-focused process, it requires all participants to become actively involved when determining the best resolution in any given set of circumstances. The breakdown of a relationship is one of life's most personal matters and every case is different. Collaborative law resolves the difficult issues while leaving intact the clients' dignity and respect for one another.
