The collaboration process focuses on reaching an agreement, with the family’s best interests at the forefront of discussions.
Solicitors for collaborative family law
If you struggle to agree on issues arising from a separation, such as finances, property and child arrangements, collaborative family law can be a very effective process.
It differs from mediation in that each party has a collaboratively trained lawyer present at all meetings, ensuring they benefit from legal advice throughout the process.
The sessions take place face-to-face with all parties around the table committed to reach solutions through agreement, not the court. There is also the opportunity to bring in other professionals, for example, financial advisors, accountants and valuers.
This approach reduces time, money, and stress and enables families to work together and move forward with better relationships, a huge benefit for everyone, especially children.
At Stowe, a number of our lawyers are trained and practising collaborative family law, and we have a nationwide network of other professionals who can support you in this area.

However, having considered that I'm now what could be described as experienced in the matter (twice), it leaves me extremely happy to make the following quote; Mark has handled my case in what can only be described as an utmost professional manner. From the extremely well informative initial consultation, to the exceptionally well balanced professional / personal support as the case came to fruition. I feel that I entered the representation with haste and left with a friend. I can say no more and would recommended him to anyone.
