Streamline Collaborative

Why Consider the Streamline Collaborative Process?

Streamline Collaborative Process is a one-cost solution where you have a team of experienced professionals who will help you reach a separation agreement. 

This is a process for people who want peace of mind knowing the cost for their divorce, from the beginning to the signing of the separation agreement. 

This process and your team will give you the best chance to resolve all the issues so that you can get on with the next stage of your life.

You will have the security of knowing what the cost will be. The price for this process is $9,000 per person, plus HST. This fee shall be apportioned between the various experts involved. 

If you wish to pursue an uncontested divorce order, there will be an additional charge of $1,000 per person, plus HST. 

Streamline Collaborative Process allows for the voluntary and free exchange of information, a pledge not to go to court and a commitment to mutual respect and cooperation.
