The Collaborative Process is a new way to resolve divorce and family disputes with dignity and respect. It is an alternative method, less confrontational and restrictive, a more solution-oriented approach.

Couples work as a team with trained lawyers and other professionals to resolve issues arising from a relationship breakdown.

The Collaborative Process is designed to minimise hurt and loss of self-esteem whilst promoting mutual problem-solving and respect. It is done in a conciliatory and dignified manner without the stress of going to court. Collaborative Practice believes the process of separation or divorce should not add to the pain of the end of a marriage, instead to help the parties and any children look to a hopeful future.

Martin and Joanne are trained Resolution Collaborative Lawyers. They have considerable experience which is recognised as they are both Accredited Resolution Specialists in the area of finances on divorce and children issues.
