The British are celebrating American style Collaborative Divorce

Lord Kerr of Tonaghmore, a justice in the UK’s new Supreme Court, said that there had been an “impressive” expansion in the use of what is called the “collaborative” approach to divorce.

In 2003, only four lawyers in England were offering the new out-of-court method, he said. Now the number had risen to 1408 in England and Wales and 100 in Northern Ireland – with a rise of 87 per cent in cases to an estimated several thousand a year.

Lord Kerr, a former Lord Chief Justice of Northern Ireland, added: “Perhaps the most inspiring statistic of all is that of the settlement rate of collaborative law cases – a remarkable 85 per cent.”
