Texas divorce: More than 1 way to reach the desired objective

Have you ever heard the phrase, "There's more than one way to skin a cat"? We suspect most readers have. It's sometimes interesting to dig into where such proverbs started. In this case, an online search suggests it traces back to at least the mid-1800s. For most of us in the U.S., it's likely to have come to the fore through Mark Twain's "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court," where he wrote: "she was wise, subtle, and knew more than one way to skin a cat," meaning she had many ways achieve her ends.

ADR: Useful in family law if conditions are right

Alternative dispute resolution – if you are a skeptic, you might be inclined to dismiss this phrase as a euphemism. In the current political environment, it might be easy to take the cynical view and relegate the phrase to a category that might also include alternative facts. But attorneys with breadth of experience in Texas family law likely agree that such views don't do justice to the potential value ADR can deliver.
