What is Collaborative Family Law?

Collaborative Family Law ("CFL") is a co-operative approach to negotiating and resolving issues arising from a family separation outside of the purview of the courts. Separated spouses, with the assistance of skilled legal counsel, negotiate their issues as they see them, in a controlled and respectful environment. While the negotiations occur, the parties agree that they will not commence litigation proceedings and that, in the event they are unable to negotiate a resolution of their dispute, neither lawyer will be eligible to represent his or her client in any subsequent litigation.

In our firm, Ted Dueck and Richard Noll are both trained and experienced in dealing with family matters using the CFL approach.
