Divorce is a legal process, and it needs to be legally untangled.
Lawyers have a role to play in this process, whatever technique a couple choose to use. One of the things that makes the collaborative approach so special and effective is that it does not involve only lawyers. It is an inclusive process in which financial advisers and even life counsellors are brought in to work, together with the family and the lawyers, to agree the best holistic solution.
It not only needs a lawyer to be involved – it needs two very special lawyers, each wholeheartedly committed to reaching agreed solutions co-operatively.
