How we can
People we help.
Many people want a peaceful divorce even when they have serious disagreements. With Collaborative Law, we have a peaceful way to resolve disputes.Let’s Get Started
Would you prefer to negotiate instead of fighting?
While you may not want a divorce, do you want to at least try to stay on good terms with you Husband or Wife?
Would you like to have both parents working together to raise your kids after you are divorced?
We can help you keep a little more control over your life and avoid some of the conflict that often arises when marriages end.
Maybe you can see your self in one of the following situations.
- An expected or unexpected divorce after a long-term marriage.
You have tried to work on or ignore issues, but they haven’t gotten better. Now you are wondering how to prepare for the future.
- You are over 50 years old and facing special financial, health or other problems after the divorce. There are different issues that become more important as you age. A Collaborative divorce can address them much better than a traditional, cookie-cutter divorce does.
- Wanting a private, low-profile divorce because of their community, business or family. Collaborative Law provides a confidential process that respects both parties.
- Seeking a peaceful divorce.
You may have children and don’t want to destroy relationships. Plus, you would like to avoid expensive, long drawn-out processes.
- Needing someone to review and explain your divorce papers.
This includes what the legal terms mean and how the procedures work in practice. We can provide plain English translations of the legalese and can explain how complicated provisions actually work.
- Needing someone to advise you in a mediation or be a neutral mediator in your case.
- Needing help understanding and negotiating a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement. These agreements can bring clarity to relationships, but can also spotlight hidden conflicts between the parties. Working in a Collaborative context provides a safe environment to work through the issues.
- Facing a divorce in a same-sex marriage. Because the law is still evolving, there can be difficult issues, especially if children are involved.

“I hope we have concluded this rather nasty matter to an acceptable degree for our clients. I think both of us would have had a very difficult time if this matter had gone to trial. It was only through your determination that we have one more negotiating session that we were able to conclude the matter for which you deserve thanks from all of us.” – J.K., Fort WorthJ.K., Fort Worth
