Collaborative Law is Spreading World-Wide

As an interesting sidelight, I want to point you to a recent article on an Australian attorney's blog mentioning how the President of their South Australia Law Society (bar association) was talking about Collaborative Law in a recent newspaper story. He has a good, basic description of how the process works and encourages people to consider using it if they are about to go through a divorce.

Collaborative Practice is also very strong in areas all across the United States, Canada, Europe, Israel, Africa and parts of South America, as well as other areas.

The basic reasons for using Collaborative Law are the same around the world. People want a less destructive process, privacy, the ability to make their own decisions and dignity. It won't work for everyone, but for many people, it can ease the family transition from married to single.

If you are facing life-changing decisions in your family, you should research Collaborative Law and meet with a Collaborative lawyer in your area.
