Collaborative Divorce is a process set forth under Texas law in which you and your spouse have your own trained and experienced Collaborative Divorce attorney and work though the issues of your divorce using a method known as “interest-based negotiation,” which enables you to formulate agreements that focus on the most important individual and mutual goals of you and your spouse and your children.
Collaborative Divorce is a private and confidential process which has rules set forth by the Texas law. Decisions are made outside of the courtroom. The divorcing couple works in a safe environment with trained attorneys and other trained Collaborative Divorce professionals, without court interference, to arrive at a creative, reasonable, and customized solution. Collaborative Divorce understands that relationships and obligations, especially as to the children, will continue after the parents are divorced. Collaborative Divorce is time-efficient, cost-effective, and flexible in regard to scheduling.
