Allyson Gardner, who is trained as a collaborative law professional, provides neutrality and advocacy through fostering harmony with collaborative lawyers and their respective clients. Allyson, in the role of a neutral family professional, is able to oversee emotional, psychological and legal matters while assisting the collaborative “team” in staying focused on the resolution process. This is not only cost-effective, but also assists parents in developing a functioning parenting plan while remaining focused on the children.
Collaborative Family Law works toward principled, negotiated and interest-centred settlements that prevent the need to litigate in court and/or the threat to do so.
Collaborative Family Law takes into account interests and relationships, and maximizes outcomes. All participants work together respectfully and in good faith to find “win-win” solutions to the legitimate needs of both parties.
