Collaborative law is a dispute resolution process, facilitated by trained lawyers who assist participants in resolving conflict using cooperative strategies rather than adversarial techniques. Through a series of group meetings, lawyers and participants focus on identifying underlying interests, generating solutions that meet them. Collaborative Family Law participants agree to negotiate an agreement without going to court.
The Association of Collaborative Family Law Professionals of Nova Scotia consists of Family Law professionals who practice independently. Each has specialized training in interest based negotiation and interdisciplinary collaborative practice.
These professionals share a commitment to resolve family disputes cooperatively.
