Win Win is what Collaborative Process is, more clients are choosing a more harmonious option to separate / divorce. The collaborative practice is productive rather than destructive. It’s a way of reaching an agreement between divorcing clients. This process according to the International Academy of Collaborative professionals (IACP) “provides you and your spouse or partner with the support and guidance of your own lawyers without going to court”.
Equally clients are able to access the proficiency of the financial neutral and family consultant, who as part of the collaborative team work with the lawyers and clients together as a non-adversarial process that effectively works through differences and disputes.
The involvement of the family professional helps coach the clients and contain the emotions during a very stressful time. The family professional will also support and guide clients to maintain a healthy relationship especially where children are involved. If necessary the family professional will refer the children to a child specialist if there are any concerns. The family professional will help manage the emotions related to the financial concerns and will help create a child-focused parenting plan.
