What is Collaborative Law?

Collaborative law is an alternative to a traditional courtroom for resolving disputes. Trials are long and expensive procedures which offer a limited range of solutions. Collaborative law can often resolve certain cases quickly, inexpensively, and with custom outcomes. In a collaborative setting, the parties discuss their dispute in person and work together to create a solution. There are two main types of collaborative law: negotiation and mediation. In a negotiation, the parties, or their attorneys, talk about the dispute directly and attempt to create a solution. Mediation is similar, but in mediation, a neutral third person sits in on the negotiation and helps the parties work toward a solution. In either case, if the parties reach a solution, the mediator, or one of the parties, will write up an agreement which will usually get approved by a judge and become a binding court order. Each party in the Collaborative law process signs a contractual agreement which include the following terms: Disclosure of Documents. Each party agrees to honestly and openly disclose all documents and information relating to the issues. Neither spouse may take advantage of a miscalculation or an inadvertent mistake. Instead, such errors are identified and corrected. Respect. Each party agrees to act respectfully and avoid disparaging or vilifying any of the participants. Insulating Children. As part of the process all participants agree to insulate the children from the proceeding and to act ins such a way as to minimize the impact of the divorce on them. Sharing Experts. The parties agree to implement outside experts where necessary in a cooperative fashion and share the costs related to those experts. (e.g. real estate appraisers, business appraisers, parenting consultants, vocational evaluators, or accountants) Win-Win Solutions. The primary goal of the process is to work toward an amicable solution and to create a “win-win” situation for all. No Court. Neither party may seek or threaten court action to resolve disputes. If the parties decide to go to court, the attorneys must withdraw and the process begins anew in the court system. One of the biggest differences in the Collaborative law process is that it recognizes that emotional issues exist that cannot be addressed by the legal system.

Do I Really Need An Attorney?

There are many situations where hiring an attorney is in your best interests. It’s a good idea to know in which instances you should get a lawyer — and the ones where you don’t need one. Two Legal Categories – A Short Explanation 1. Civil Law: This area of law covers all legal issues that do not involve criminal activity or breaking the law. Generally, one party sues another because they have been “wronged” in some way and want some type of compensation for that “wrong.” Civil law also covers legal agreements, real estate transactions, divorces, child custody, and other matters where legal paperwork is necessary to protect all parties involved. 2. Criminal Law: This area of law relates to offenses that break the laws of a local, state, or federal governments. The prosecution is handled by lawyers employed by the governmental entity, and the defense is handled by either a publicly appointed defender or a private defense attorney whom the defendant pays. In criminal law, there are misdemeanors (small offenses) and felonies (more serious crimes). If you find yourself facing the legal system for any reason, you should probably understand that the best policy is usually to at least consult with an attorney. In general, however, the following guidelines apply: When You Should Get Legal Advice 1. A Complex or Nasty Divorce When couples mutually agree on all of the details of a split, there is no real need for a lawyer. When, however, there are issues of property, investments, savings, support, debt, and child custody arrangements, only a fool neglects getting legal representation. The terms of a finalized divorce are very binding, and they can only be changed by going back to court. All of this can be avoided with a good lawyer up front. 2. A Wrongful Termination or Discrimination in the Workplace There are both state and federal laws at play here, and the average person does not understand them. Only an attorney who specializes in this type of law is really qualified to carry your suit into court. You can be certain that the other side will have very solid legal representation. You should too. 3. Law Suits If you are being sued and the consequences of a loss may result in the loss of a good deal of money or property, you need a lawyer. Again, the other side has a lawyer, so you need to get one too. Most of these things are settled out of court, but you want an experienced negotiator on your side. 4. A DUI Driving under the influence (DUI) has become a serious charge. Consequences can include fines, jail time, loss of license, or any combination of these three. A good lawyer can meet with the prosecutor and get the charges reduced, especially if this is your first offense. Never go to court on a DUI charge without a lawyer — unless you are willing to accept the maximum penalty. 5. Drug Charges Defendants who have personally hired attorneys always fare better than those who do not or those who take a public defender. Remember, a public defender is on case overload, and will usually recommend a plea bargain that will be worse than what a private attorney could get you. If you qualify financially for a public defender, still try to find a friend or relative willing to pony up the money for a lawyer. 6. A Car Accident with Injury If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, the other guy’s insurance company will be all over you to settle your claim as quickly as possible. Don’t do it. In fact, never talk to an insurance company representative until you have first consulted a personal injury attorney. You may not be familiar with the laws or the normal compensation rates, but seasoned attorneys are. If you are injured in car accident, don’t talk to anyone except to answer cursory questions from the police on the scene. 7. Criminal Charges Facing any criminal charge is scary, and you may not even know your rights as an accused person. Get a lawyer immediately for protection of your rights and so that you are defended as well as possible — guilty or not. 8. Wills and Trusts Save your family from disputes and legal issues after you die. Set up your will or trust with a reputable attorney well in advance. Your first will should be set up as soon as you have a child and should be changed periodically throughout your life as circumstances change. 9. Business Startups Whether you are going it alone, have a partner, or are setting up a corporation, never try to navigate all of the legal requirements alone. You need to be lawful and you need to be protected. Only a lawyer who specializes in business law can ensure these things. 10. Denial of Workmen’s Comp or Disability Claim It is often the policy of such institutions to deny a claim the first time around. This is because they know a certain percentage of people will simply accept that ruling and give up. Don’t be one of those people. Get a lawyer up front – they will take the fee out of the settlement, so there are no up-front costs. 11. Bankruptcy You can’t get one without a lawyer, and they will want payment up front. When You Don’t Need a Lawyer There are really very few legal situations in which you will not need a lawyer, but here are a few: 1. Small Claims Court This court is reserved for civil disputes that do not involve large sums of money, the cap being determined by individual states. Normally, this is an informal procedure – both sides tell their stories and the judge decides. 2. Traffic Tickets Pay the fine and get over it. The only exception to this general rule is if the ticket will put enough points on your license to cause a suspension or if the offense is serious enough that your insurance rates will skyrocket. In these situations, a lawyer can get the ticket reduced to a non-moving offense and the only consequence will be a fine. Yes, our legal system does respond to one’s ability to pay. 3. Lawsuits That You Do Not Want to Contest If someone is suing you and you know in advance what they are asking for and are willing to pay the amount, you can simply plead no contest, appear in court without an attorney, or not appear at all. If you don’t appear, a summary judgment will be issued against you.

How is Child Custody determined?

In India, the child custody law is invoked when married couples decide to separate from each other and apply for divorce under their respective marriage laws pertaining to their practice of faith. When a marriage terminates, the person who suffers the most is the child or children born out of the wedlock. The Indian Law considers the welfare of the child as the most important factor of consideration, before providing the custody of the child to either the mother or father. Under Indian Law, either parent does not have a clear primacy to be granted the custody of the child, owing to the evolving lifestyle circumstances of present day couples including working parents and their financial status. The general factors that determine the custody of the child include Safe-keeping of the child, Ethical upbringing of the child, imparting good quality education to the child and economic well-being of the guardian.

How Long Does It Take To Get A Divorce?

In India, divorce my mutual consent can be obtained within a period of 6 months, but no petition in such a case can be filed within the first year of marriage. There also has to be a gap of six months between the first and second motion. The court can waive off this cooling period in some cases. Hence in case of divorce by mutual consent, it usually takes 18-24 months. In case of a contested divorce, the time period is longer, prevailing over a period of about 3-5 years pertaining to the individual case complications and possibility that either party can challenge the decision in the High Court and Supreme Court.

How Will I Be Kept Informed About My Case?

Our attorneys would be in regular contact with all our clients by notifying them periodically of their respective case status. The primary modes of communication would be through Phone Call and WhatsApp communications along with email communication.

What Is Legal Custody?

In divorce cases, a court of competent jurisdiction in India, primarily orders the custody of the children in three forms, namely Physical Custody, Joint Custody and Legal Custody. Legal Custody is the right awarded to the parents to make important decisions regarding the child’s life after the parents’ divorce. Legal Custody can either be joint or sole and it entirely depends on the circumstance of each case. Generally, the courts tend to decide on joint legal custody to ensure that both parents are involved in the child’s decision making process. Legal custody is about making the decisions for your child regarding their: Academic training; Religious disciplining; Extracurricular activities; Cultural activity; Healthcare; and Psychological counseling.
