What is Kingston Collaborative Family Law?
Kingston Collaborative Family Law is a way for you to resolve disputes respectfully without going to court.
In a separation or divorce, Kingston Collaborative Family Law requires your commitment to:
• mutual respect;
• open communication;
• information sharing;
• a mutually acceptable settlement.
You and your spouse or partner work with your own lawyers and other trained professionals.
They provide support and guidance as you work together on a solution that everyone can live with.

• disagree respectfully;
• make kids a priority;
• plan with the future in mind;
• work creatively and cooperatively;
• keep their process out of the courts.
