Divorce is a sensitive matter that can be handled in a number of different ways by you and your lawyers. Collaborative divorce is often a less expensive, shorter, and emotionally easier process than the traditional litigation process used in Katy contested divorces and uncontested divorces. To be sure that the best interests of each party are protected, including both partners and children, you should discuss the different divorce options available to you with your lawyer.
Collaborative divorce is often appealing to couples who will pursue either a contested divorce in Katy, where the partners cannot come to an agreement on some part of the divorce, or a Katy uncontested divorce, where the partners do agree. During a collaborative divorce, one mediator will work with both partners to achieve a settlement that satisfies both of their interests. The mediator provides legal information and advises both partners, but does not represent one partner over the other. If a settlement cannot be reached during mediation and the partners choose to go to court, the Katy collaborative divorce attorney who acted as a mediator cannot represent either of them.
Collaborative attorneys should know not only the details of collaborative law, but also the specifics of family, real estate, and other types of law in the greater Houston area. Your divorce settlement should suit your best interests, and those interests may not be limited to what is typically involved in this area of the law. At the Law Office of J.
