How Does Collaborative Divorce Work in Texas?

In collaborative divorce, both spouses agree to resolve all divorce-related issues outside of the courtroom. Even though both parties will be represented by a separate attorney to help protect their best interests, issues such as child custody, property division, and spousal support will be agreed upon peacefully. A peaceful negotiation allows for less stress, no court hearings, and a better outcome for each side. A collaborative divorce also allows you to focus on a more customized approach, which turns the focus on present and future-based decisions.

Choosing this method to end your marriage is highly personal and should only be decided upon if you have all the facts. Our Austin collaborative divorce lawyers can provide the insight you need to make the right decision. We welcome you to call our offices at any time to schedule a confidential consultation.
