DBH Family Lawyers are trained and accredited to participate in collaboration.

Collaborative Law is a chance for you, your ex-partner and your lawyers to resolve a family law dispute outside litigation. Advice is given in an open and transparent way throughout the process. This can ultimately result in minimizing the emotional strain and costs associated with a separation.

Collaborative practice involves an intention and commitment to work together in good faith to negotiate a settlement.

You will both be represented by lawyers trained in collaborative negotiation who will agree to exchange information in a cooporative manner. Everyone involved will participate in the meetings and, if needed, experts will be hired to provide additional information and support.
