A Different Approach to Divorce and Separation

PUBLISHED 02.03.15

Our matrimonial team have this year experienced an increased awareness and interest in the process of Collaborative Law.

We are finding that many of our prospective and actual clients are attracted to the prospect of reaching their own agreements within a more relaxed atmosphere namely away from the Court or the threat of any Court involvement. There appears to be growing focus from our clients that they wish to discuss the difficult aspects that arise from their separation as separating spouses but also, more importantly, as separating parents for their children.

Darren Cleverdon is the Head of the Family Department and a Specialist Family Solicitor. He has been trained to carry out the Collaborative approach to assist in minimising the conflict that so often arises following a relationship breakdown. It can often be a process that is both financially, and certainly emotionally, cheaper for the couple concerned and it maximises the potential for the albeit different relationship between the parties to be intact, which can only be a positive outcome for all concerned, not least any children that they may have together. Our firm promotes the prospect of Collaborative Law wherever possible on all cases concerning relationship breakdown.
