SCOTTISH FAMILY LAW

Collaborative Law

If, following separation, all matters have been agreed  the process of entering into a Minute of Agreement and then proceeding to divorce should be straightforward.

Unfortunately, in some cases, parties cannot agree about certain issues. 

In the past, if an agreement could not be reached, the default option was to raise court proceedings.

Court actions can be expensive, lengthy and often result in a deterioration of the relationship between the parties.

An alternative to raising a court action is to use the Collaborative Process. 

This is a type of dispute resolution where the parties ( and their solicitors) agree to try and resolve matters in a series of round the table meetings. 

The parties agree not to go to court.They sign an agreement which sets out the process and commits the parties to working together to find a solution.

To make use of this process  it is necessary to consult a family lawyer who is trained in collaborative practice.
