Why Go to Court if You Don't Have To?

At Knights Law Professional Corporation – it is our view that the vast majority of family law disputes are best settled out of court. Of course, it is best if you and your spouse could work out your separation at the kitchen table. However, if you can’t, then let us help you through the collaborative process.

There are many benefits of choosing collaborative family law and as a result we typically advise our clients to take this route during family law proceedings.

What is Collaborative Family Law?

Collaborative family law is an alternative dispute resolution process where couples voluntarily work together to resolve their legal issues without going to court and through the assistance of collaborative family lawyers. In some cases, this process may also include collaborative professionals such as financial specialists and/or social workers. This process begins through a mutual agreement between both parties that they endeavour to resolve their conflicts respectfully and with minimal conflict. From there a separation agreement is drafted that both parties agree to.

Collaborative family lawyers also have specialized training in things like:

  • Dispute resolution tactics to get parties to agree and cooperate with each other
  • Providing solutions that serve in both parties’ best interests while simultaneously taking individual rights into consideration
  • Encouraging and supporting both sides to speak openly and honest with each other
  • Ensuring that all financial documents are taken into consideration to make informed decisions

Benefits of Collaborative Family Law

There are many benefits of participating in collaborative family law as an alternative dispute resolution service. While the list below is not exhaustive - some of the benefits of collaborative family law include:

In order for collaborative family law to work for you – it is important that both parties agree from the onset to participate in the program and aim to keep things amicable.
