Collaborative Divorce Lawyer in New Westminster

When a couple makes the difficult decision to divorce, they have many factors to consider: How will the divorce impact the children? What’s the most equitable option for all parties? To sort through some of these difficult issues, including assessing the emotional and financial impact on your family, consider the benefits of a collaborative divorce.


BC law allows for multiple separation scenarios. Some couples divorce as soon as they pass their year of separation. However, disagreement on issues such as child custody, visitation rights, property division, and related concerns can prolong the divorce process indefinitely. When this happens, both costs and relationship troubles can escalate.


Collaborative divorce is a unique option. Here’s how it works:

  1. In a collaborative divorce, each spouse hires a lawyer separately, then both parties agree to resolve the majority of their issues without going to court.
  2. Either party may decide to work with a divorce coach to overcome emotional barriers to moving forward.
  3. Both parties can hire valuators if the value of property and other assets is in dispute.
  4. If children are a part of the divorce, both parents can agree to hire a child psychologist to help assist in addressing the children’s concerns and fears.

A collaborative divorce allows all parties to have equal input to move forward in the divorce process amicably.
