Collaborative Divorce

At Crossroads Law, we believe in alternative dispute resolution. The standard way that family lawyers resolve disputes is through the court system. However, experience tells us that there are often better ways of resolving family law disputes. These alternative processes include mediation, arbitration, mediation/arbitration and collaborative divorce, also called collaborative family law.

Collaborative family law is a process in which the focus moves away from winning and towards fairness and the best interest of the family. Instead of trying to get more than the other spouse, in a collaborative divorce process the focus shifts to satisfying the underlying needs, fears and hopes of each spouse. Crossroads Law provides collaborative family lawyers for clients throughout B.C. and Alberta.
