09 May Best family law processes
Separating spouses have many issues to resolve – including choosing the most appropriate decision making process. Early selection of the best process helps separating spouses reach the best possible agreements, save time and money, and minimise acrimony.
I have developed the attached chart to help explain the four main process choices available to spouses – being mediation, collaborative practice, lawyer-to-lawyer negotiations and court. I find the chart useful in helping clients select the most appropriate process for their family circumstances.
You are welcome to use the chart to discuss this issue with your clients, friends or colleagues. I would welcome your feedback.
