Collaborative Family Law

We embrace the Mediation process and Collaborative Law principles, where possible, to deal with a client’s Family Law difficulties. Noeleen Redmond is a qualified collaborative practitioner. The ultimate aim of Collaborative Law is to avoid the use of the court in family law cases. The success and effectiveness of the system depends on the honesty and co-operation of the participants.

Negotiations take place in ‘four-way’ settlement meetings attended by both parties and their solicitors. Our role is to guide and advise our client towards a reasonable resolution. While the legal advice is an integral part of the process, the parties make all of the decisions.

If either party chooses or decides to proceed to court then the collaborative process ends, and both collaborative solicitors can no longer act for either party in contested family law proceedings.
