Collaborative Law Services in Kamloops
One very effective form of negotiating an out-of-court family law agreement is called “collaborative family law,” or “collaborative practice.” Commonly practiced in the United States and Canada since the early 1990s, collaborative family law offers a fresh, dignified approach to resolving issues. Cates Ford Soll & Epp LLP is pleased to offer collaborative law in Kamloops as a new, client-centred approach to the resolution of family law disputes.
How the Collaborative Law Process Works
In collaborative practice, the lawyers and the involved parties all sign an agreement that binds everyone to work collaboratively as a team to resolve all outstanding issues. The lawyers agree that they will not take the matter to court or threaten court action. The parties agree that if either party wants to commence a court application, both parties will need to find new lawyers. This agreement invests the lawyers and the parties in amicable and collaborative out-of-court negotiations. The lawyers and the parties work as a team in a fair and respectful process. Where necessary, the team will be supplemented with other professionals, such as divorce coaches, child experts and financial advisors.
