Collaborative Law Family Dispute


Often, but not necessarily.

Every divorce is different and sometimes it is hard to compare what something might have cost if an adversarial approach, for example, had been adopted, instead of the collaborative approach. Many cases do demonstrate the cost-savings to be achieved by all sitting round a table together talking through solutions, rather than competing via adversarial solicitors for supposedly “the best deal”. Those who adopt the collaborative approach quickly recognise that the best deal is not necessarily the cheapest one, or the one in which they end up with most material things.

Factor in the emotional as well as the financial cost, especially where children are involved, and the question of “cheapness” simply doesn’t apply.
