Collaborative law divorces offer dignity through the process

Getting a divorce is something that is usually associated with lengthy legal battles that can turn ugly. A collaborative divorce, however, is one in which both parties work together with experts to divide assets and come up with ways to care for the needs of children. Texas residents might be interested to learn exactly how this type of divorce works.

Preparation and foresight often ease divorce process

Dallas-area residents have likely heard of divorces or child custody battles that rage on for years. With planning and foresight, however, these types of contentious and drawn-out legal proceedings can often be avoided. In most cases, it's in the interest of both spouses to settle matters related to the division of assets and child custody as quickly and amicably as possible.

When might a third-party expert help during a Texas divorce?

Choosing to have the assistance of a Dallas divorce attorney on your side is prudent whether a couple chooses an adversarial or collaborative approach. While an attorney has the legal knowledge to protect clients, legal training doesn’t automatically come with an expert degree in the fields of business, finance, real estate or other specific vocations.
