The Collaborative Law Approach to Divorce in Texas
There are many advantages to the collaborative law approach to divorce in Texas. If you and your spouse are in agreement on most issues, a divorce lawyer can inform you about the uncontested divorce process.
Not all marriages end badly. The collaborative law approach offers another alternative to bringing your divorce proceedings to trial or relying upon mediation sessions to reach a settlement with your spouse. Rather than allowing a judge to decide child custody and property division, both parties are able to customize the terms of their divorce.
Even if you are able to communicate effectively with your spouse, it is advised to have an attorney present to ensure all important matters are addressed. Each spouse will sign a document stating they will be respectful to each other during the divorce negotiations; bear in mind that if you cannot reach an agreement via collaborative law, you can always decide later to bring the issue to court.
The advantages of an uncontested divorce are plentiful:
- Privacy – details of personal lives are kept confidential because very little paperwork is filed with the court;
- Open communication – statements made cannot be used against you at a later date;
- Flexible – allows both parties to customize solutions for property division, child custody, child support and visitation; and
- Less stressful – Arriving at a mutual agreement will foster a better relationship with your spouse in the future.
