Just wondered if people had any experience. I know collaborative law is fairly new but it does seem like it might be the best way to sort everything rather than see the mediator, go back talk to solicitor, go back to mediation etc. Not in England if that makes a difference....

Resolution website has a lot of info on both processes - I have the impression from the client's point of view that if you are worried about dealing with things yourself without a lawyer with you then you are better off with collaborative law - you did need to realise though that if a collab process goes wrong you have to get a different lawyer ....

Cheers- a good website. I really like my solicitor even though she's busy as hell (got t be a good thing though) and the whole collaborative thing seems much more sensible than talking to a mediator, then going back to talk to solicitor, then going back to mediation.
Unfortunately DH doesn't want to pay for any solicitors....
