Until recently, all family law and divorce cases in Texas went through the litigation model. That changed in 2001, when legislation created an option known as Collaborative Law and Collaborative Divorce. Collaborative Divorce grants you and your spouse the right to pursue your interests outside the courtroom –– whether your situation is amicable or not.
Collaborative Divorce removes judges and court mandates from the equation, empowering you to forge an acceptable settlement. In the process, you avoid many of the delays, costs, and uncertainties associated with litigation. And don’t let the name fool you; the more complicated the situation –– such as affairs, addictions, and mental health problems –– the more you may need the benefits of Collaborative Divorce.
In the state of Texas, the vast majority of Collaborative Divorce cases settle with an agreement. To learn more about Collaborative Law and Collaborative Divorce, download a copy of our article on the subject, or contact us for a consultation.
