You can view contact details for Marguerite’s offices in Hawthorn East below.

Divorce and Family Lawyer, Marguerite Picard
In this video you will find an explanation of why collaborative divorce based practice can be more rewarding for couples that are separating than a divorce based on litigation. Collaborative divorce or “friendly divorce” as it is sometimes called can save any couple a huge percentage of their assets that would otherwise be spent on lawyers, solicitors and court fees. Apart from the financial aspect of divorce a process where the separating couple comes together in an amicable fashion keeps family ties together and is less emotionally stressful.

Lawyers who work in a collaborative fashion will involve psychologists, child psychologists and financial planners to assist at various stages of the separation and divorce. Seeking the assistance of these professionals works to preserve your emotional and financial well being. The emotional stability of your children as they go through the divorce with you, and after the divorce, will also depend on how your spouse copes with the divorce as well.

Financial planners are able to expand upon your financial understanding of not just your needs but those of the entire family and to involve everyone allowing for a capacity to understand what is best for all.

The traditional path to a divorce court just doesn’t allow for you to care what happens to each other and certainly doesn’t consider the new family ties and unit going forward. Divorce court litigation is based on winning that most often means someone looses.

To ensure a considered collaborative approach to your separation, divorce and asset settlement contact Marguerite Picard now.
