Is a collaborative divorce the right answer for you?

Since the statistics show that many Houston marriages end in divorce there are thousands of people going through a divorce each year. Divorce is a traumatic time for families and can also be very costly. One alternative to a traditional divorce is a collaborative law divorce.

In a collaborative divorce the spouses do not go through a traditional court divorce. Instead they meet together with their attorneys and work through each issue. This approach can have many advantages for couples. There is an open discussion among all the parties involved which ensures that everyone's voice is heard. All issues are out on the table and the couple and their attorneys are able to work through them. A collaborative divorce is also more private as it avoids the court system. It can also save thousands of dollars over a traditional divorce and can take significantly less time. Couples who go through a collaborative divorce may also feel like it was the less-stressful option.

A collaborative divorce may be something that a Houston couple who is considering a divorce should look into. Although a divorce is an emotionally charged event a collaborative divorce can help make sure each party receives a settlement that is fair. A legal professional skilled in family law can help a person through their divorce and determine if a collaborative law divorce is a good option.

No one thinks their marriage will end in divorce but the statistics show that many will. In Texas, collaborative law divorces can be a good way to end a marriage and prepare for a new beginning.
