Peaceful Negotiations: Consider a Collaborative Divorce

by | Mar 8, 2018 | Divorce

The end of a marriage can feel like the end of your life as you know it. Dozens of seemingly unanswerable questions loom ahead: Who gets to keep the house? How will I face my parents when they find out? What about the kids? On top of all that, the prospect of facing your soon-to-be-former spouse across a courtroom is an intimidating one, even if the decision to divorce was mutual. A collaborative divorce could be the solution.

WHAT IS COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE?

Too much of the time, divorce can turn into a mud-slinging, asset-grabbing mess. And if your divorce was preceded by months or years of disagreements, the thought of collaborating with your former spouse might seem laughable. But with the help of a collaborative divorce attorney, it can be done — outside a court room.

Collaborative divorce looks at those lists of things that have to be split up as interests — as in, what is in the best interest of everybody involved? Instead of each party having their own list of assets and rights they believe should be theirs, your attorneys will work from a single list, negotiating while you are both in the room.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

More important than who gets what in a divorce, is why does each party want or need the assets or rights they are demanding? Collaborative divorce attorneys will help you focus on these interests, instead of trying to get each party as much as possible. This type of solution results in a more peaceful, productive discussion, and ultimately creates an outcome that can work for everybody. As you, your former spouse, and your respective attorneys work together along with a professional financial advisor, you can come up with a plan that will work for you. No need for a judge who doesn’t know you or your situation to make decisions for you.

If you are ready to start a positive collaborative divorce in Texas, rather than dragging negotiations through a courtroom with only a minimum of say-so in the outcome, contact The Law Office of Tim Whitten. You can end your marriage with the children’s emotional well-being and your dignity intact.

Helping You Pursue Alternative Conflict Resolution Methods

Too often clients in family law cases spend substantial sums of money arguing about issues in court and often feel worse at the end of their case than before they started. At The Law Office Of Tim Whitten, P.C., we are sensitive to this reality. This is why we explore alternatives to the traditional litigation approach with each client as we help him or her identify long-term legal interests and goals. After our representation begins, we strive to be available and responsive to each client to ensure that we stay on track with that client’s interests and goals.
