Collaborative Law

Collaborative Law is a process which allows two people to sort out their relationship issues, by each appointing a lawyer and conducting negotiations over several “four-way meetings.” Both parties will sign a “participation agreement” which discloses neither of you will issue proceedings. This process is thought to be less aggressive and encourages harmony and communication in comparison to a traditional divorce. Contact us if you are interested in this or feel it could fit your situation.

Living Together

Our expert team can advise and assist with any legal matters relating to living together. Although there’s no legal definition the consensus is it defines a couple living together who are not married.
