What Is Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative divorce is a way to dissolve a marriage through a cooperative process to understand the needs of the people involved and how to protect each family member’s future in the most effective way possible.

Collaborative divorce proceedings use many different professionals throughout the negotiation, such as:

  • Attorneys
  • Mental health professionals
  • Financial professionals

The parties and their attorneys meet and negotiate a settlement while using those professionals, as needed, to help guide them through the process and reach agreements that are best for the child. By working with outside professionals, you can have a clear understanding of how to help your family in the best way possible and make informed decisions from there.

How Collaborative Divorce Can Help

Collaborative divorce is completely different than litigation. In a Texas Collaborative Divorce, the parties begin by signing an agreement that they will NOT go to court. This lets everyone breathe a little bit easier from the beginning. One of the greatest advantages of a collaborative divorce is that it is private and confidential. You can even file your divorce with your initials instead of your full name. This provides you privacy that is impossible in litigation. Furthermore, and most importantly, it puts kids first. You are able to craft a unique and carefully thought out parenting plan with the help of your lawyer and any other professionals in the team. In the litigation process, it is very common for judges to slap on a standard parenting plan and move on in the case. This could be detrimental to kids who have extracurricular activities or parents with nontraditional work schedules.

While this process is a healthier way to end a divorce, it is not always right for everyone. If you are interested in a collaborative divorce, please contact us and we will gladly explain the process in more depth to you.
