The Collaborative Family Law process – what is it, and how can it benefit me?

In this podcast, Madeleine Young and Sue Baker of our Family & Matrimonial team take a look at the Collaborative Family Law process as an alternative dispute resolution option, as Good Divorce Week draws to a close. Good Divorce Week, an initiative from Resolution, has focussed this year on ending the family court crisis in light of the increasing backlog caused by the overstretched family court system.

As part of their discussion, Madeleine and Sue look at:

  • What is the Collaborative Family Law process, and how it works;
  • What are the benefits and pitfalls of the process;
  • How does it compare to dealing with separation through the Courts

They also recount some of their own experiences of acting as Collaborative lawyers in practice.
