Instead of dealing through solicitors, this new approach, called Collaborative Law, involves couples working with their solicitors, all together in the same room, to reach agreement without the need for costly and stressful court battles.
“Sadly, family breakdown is fact of life,” explains Sarah Scott, trained collaborative solicitor and partner with Oxley and Coward Solicitors LLP. “As a member of Resolution, a 5700-strong group of family lawyers I am committed to minimising the financial and emotional pain it causes. By adopting this conciliatory approach, the aim is to put the needs of any children involved first. Collaborative law is a natural extension of this idea. By all sitting together, the collaborative approach ensures that couples stay in control of their own future, instead of leaving decisions to a judge in a courtroom.”
The family department at Oxley and Coward is headed up by Partner Sarah Scott and the firm undertakes a wide variety of legal work in family law and currently boasts the largest family department in Rotherham.
