Fixed Fee Collaborative Law
Four way meetings which includes you, your partner, your lawyer, and your partner’s lawyer.
Meetings between the two lawyers to prepare for the four way meetings.
You communicate directly with your partner with the support of your lawyer.
All four participants pledge not to make an application to court. This is a powerful incentive to reach agreement and provides a more relaxed atmosphere without the threat of court proceedings hanging over the negotiations.
You and your partner between you decide what is best for your family.
Everything is discussed openly and your lawyers advise you in front of each other, there is no arm-twisting, no horse trading, and no secret negotiations.
Other professionals are instructed as needed, such as counsellors, accountants, family therapists, actuaries and surveyors.
You and your partner are in control of the timetable.
You and your partner are also in control of the outcome.
Speed, an agreement can be reached after only three meetings.
Your lawyers work together – not against each other.
