Dallas Collaborative Divorce Lawyer

Helping Families Find Balanced Solutions

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 Process

Our attorneys can guide you through the entire collaborative divorce process and strive towards a favorable outcome.

An overview of the collaborative divorce process can include:

  • Hire Attorneys: First, each party hires their own collaborative law attorneys to represent them.
  • Commit to Process: Each attorney must commit to the collaborative law process and resolving issues without resorting to court.
  • Preparation: Both parties will have meetings with their respective attorneys to gather and discuss divorce details, hire expert witnesses, and other information needed to prepare for the negotiations.
  • Joint sessions: All parties will come together in a joint meeting to negotiate the terms of the divorce. Both sides will be able to explain their wishes and present their evidence. Joint sessions can last for as many sessions as necessary.
  • Settlement: Once a resolution is reached, the attorneys will finalize the agreement in a contract.

The process can be complex and overwhelming, so it is important that you hire an attorney with the right experience and knowledge to help you navigate your collaborative divorce.

Benefits of a Collaborative Divorce

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.

Collaborative divorce can provide numerous benefits for couples due to its cooperative nature. Couples strive towards agreement and minimize conflict, which can create healthier relationships with all parties involved.

Differences Between Collaborative Divorce vs Traditional Divorce

Collaborative divorce is different from traditional divorce in the following ways:

  • Attorney Representation - 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.
  • Open Environment - 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.
  • Neutral Third Parties - 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.
