Collaborative Law (also called Collaborative Practice) is a structured process that provides an alternative to going to court.

There are three basic principles concerning collaborative divorce:
  • The parties must promise not to litigate the case
  • There should be an honest exchange of information between the spouses
  • The parties must undertake to search for a mutually acceptable solution that takes into account the welfare of both parties and their children.

Our Story

At Aussie Divorce we aim to revolutionise the way divorce proceedings are conducted. In our vision, lengthy litigation will be a thing of the past, and well-prepared parties will engineer the way to a speedy resolution. Individuals will be empowered to take charge of their divorce, guiding their lawyers with informed choices, and vastly reducing the financial impact of the divorce process on themselves and their families.

Alan Weiss – Founder – Managing Director

Alan Weiss developed after he experienced himself how devastating proceedings can be. He said: "For twenty years, I have used my experience as a successful real estate agent to educate my clients about the importance of planning for their retirement. As my divorce proceeded, I witnessed firsthand my own future security, and that of my family's, being destroyed by acrimonious and costly divorce litigation. I created to help people avoid an experience like this and lose thousands of dollars. Instead the system will assist them in getting on with their lives."

Alan Weiss added: "While we can't change the legal system, and we can't help it if spouses want to fight, can help them navigate through the process of getting their divorce. Divorce is like a project, with a start, middle and end. If you were to take part in a marathon you would prepare. Why should a divorce be any different? One needs to prepare, know exactly what the lay of the land is (how the Family Court works) and what outcome (financial settlement, access to the kids etc.) can be expected." Alan Weiss pointed out further: " will help avoid common mistakes that most people are likely to make because of their inexperience with the Family Law."
