Houston Collaborative Law
Divorces and related matters such as child support, child custody and child visitation rights are ridden with conflicts. What people don't know is that there are ways to reduce the costs, stress and friction that accompanies a divorce dispute. Collaborative family law techniques are known to help people reduce expense and argument when trying to resolve difficult issues.
A collaborative divorce may lesson conflict and save money
At the law offices of Frank E. Mann, I use collaborative law methods to help clients save money and lessen stress when dealing with divorce, property division, and other difficult matters. For more information about this approach to handling family law disputes, contact me today. Let me put my experience to work for you.
Conflict mediation using collaboration requires both parties to commit their time and willingness to resolve conflicts together
Under collaborative divorce law, different lawyers represent each party. Before the process begins, the lawyers and the divorcing couple formally commit to resolving as many issues as possible without resorting to trial. The attorneys then work with their individual clients to identify non-contentious issues. The parties may name other specialists, such as child psychologists, financial advisors, or property assessors. If the other party agrees, the named experts become part of the team working to settle the case. The role of the collaborative divorce lawyers is to keep the process moving, even when difficulties arise.
Once all the issues are resolved, the two lawyers/attorneys draft a proposal for the court, submitting it jointly. It is possible that a final judgment will be granted without the necessity of a court appearance. At my Houston family law office, my clients find that their investment of time in the process pays excellent dividends in reduced costs, less stress, and more control of the outcome.
