Pearland Collaborative Divorce Attorneys

Divorce Resolutions Without Lengthy Court Battles

Many divorces come with some disputes. Some disagreements are more serious than others. However, you do not necessarily have to engage in court-supervised divorce litigation simply because you and your spouse disagree on one or more terms. There are many alternatives to a traditional court-ordered divorce, and one of the most effective methods is known as collaborative divorce.

At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we help our clients explore collaborative divorce as an opportunity for spouses to work together in order to establish a legally-binding divorce settlement. If you are preparing to engage in a divorce, or have already begun the process, contact our firm and learn how our collaborative divorce attorneys may help you find positive solutions with an alternative divorce method in Pearland, TX.

Collaborative Divorce Explained

Collaborative divorce is a legal method of divorce settlement that reduces the amount of court supervision in the process. The legal procedure of negotiations and arrangements are made outside of court with both parties and their attorneys present. The only court supervision necessary in a collaborative divorce is when the final agreement is submitted to a judge for approval.

Spouses work collaboratively on all aspects of divorce, including:

The Benefits of Collaborative Divorce

There are several immediate benefits to collaborative divorce. Without needing to arrange dates for court hearing and lengthy procedures, both parties involved can save time and money. Negotiation arrangements outside of court with the help of a collaborative divorce lawyer from our firm may allow the entire process to complete much faster than a traditional divorce.

Collaborative divorces may offer many long-term benefits as well. Like mediation, a collaborative divorce may foster healthy communication between spouses. This can help to reduce family troubles and disagreements after both parents have moved on in their separate lives. This may lend to a better life for both parents as well as any children involved.
