Collaborative Family Law

Resolution Without Going to Court

Collaborative Family Law can spare you and your family time, money and stress by avoiding court, and embracing a collaborative rather than adversarial solution to the legal issues that arise as a relationship ends. CFL is driven by family law attorneys who encourage both parties to come a resolution out of court through good faith efforts, over the course of a series of meetings. If CFL doesn't allow the parties to come to a resolution, they can file a lawsuit in court, but any discussions and negotiations during the CFL process are inadmissable.

Less Time, Less Money, Less Stress

CFL allows you to control your own meetings and negotiations, rather than this schedule being driven by a court, and can result in a better relationship on both sides and a more amicable resolution. At Blackwell & Edwards, we support Fayetteville-area spouses interested in CFL, and strive to reach a resolution that all parties are happy with without the need to go to court.
