Dallas Collaborative Divorce Lawyer
Why Collaborative Divorce is Beneficial
Divorce is often viewed as a very stressful time in a person's life, and for good reason. When we work hard to build a marriage, a home, and a family, it can be very difficult to watch all of our efforts break down. When the very things in life such as your children and your assets are threatened, the last thing you need or want is a contentious divorce, because that puts everything in jeopardy.
At Mathur Law Offices, P.C., we find that a collaborative divorce is better than a contested divorce. If you want to obtain an amicable divorce and avoid the headache and expense of a difficult divorce, we can help.
Collaborative Divorce Basics
In Texas, collaborative law is a process used by specially trained attorneys to help their clients effectively resolve their divorce-related issues. The purpose of a collaborative divorce is to encourage the open sharing of information and cooperation between the attorneys and the parties, and free from the threat of court intervention.
Some of the benefits of a collaborative divorce, include:
- You and your spouse control the outcome.
- It facilitates open communication and a friendlier environment.
- Since parents are actually working together collaboratively, it's easier on any children involved.
- Spouses set aside their differences and work towards amicable resolutions.
- It's far more cost-effective than litigation, and the divorce can be accomplished sooner.
How is collaborative divorce different?
When you hire an attorney for a collaborative divorce, your lawyer cannot represent you in court. You and your spouse, and your respective attorneys sign an agreement that all disputed issues will be resolved through settlement procedures, otherwise the attorneys must withdraw.
With a collaborative approach, the parties must voluntarily disclose all relevant information, and they cannot threaten to go to trial. The spouses are expected to work together and to work with one another openly, honestly, and respectfully.
If necessary, neutral third parties such as financial consultants can be brought in to facilitate the settlement process so that both parties are satisfied with the end result.
If the parties become engaged in a conflict, they can stop the process and proceed on their own or with other attorneys.
