Collaborative family law allows couples to negotiate the terms of their own separation with the assistance of lawyers who understand the collaborative process.
One of the key benefits in the process is that couples can also draw on the expertise and services of other professional advisers to reach a solution. These advisers may include children’s specialists, psychologists, accountants or financial planners, depending upon the issue at hand.
The relevant adviser is called upon to join the negotiation process and assists couples in determining a fair and reasonable solution to their issue – whether it concerns a financial settlement, who the children will live with or what is in the children’s best interests long term. A fully qualified expert ensures that the needs of both parties and their families are addressed.
The lawyers at GSCFL have worked with many specialist advisers over the years. To assist clients, we can recommend suitably qualified experts who can advise on specific issues as they arise.
