Collaborative divorce: Why you still need an attorney

When a couple first decides to divorce, many want to keep the process as amicable as possible.

Man pays child support on child who isn't his, has to pay arrears

Being named a child's father is a big event in a man's life. When the man isn't in a relationship with the mother, that event can lead to legal issues like child support.

As it turns out, the woman pointed her finger at the wrong man when naming him as the father.

Many of our readers have read blog posts in which we discuss collaborative divorce. For people who are just embarking on the divorce process, a collaborative divorce can prove to be an excellent way to get issues resolved. Just to be clear, a collaborative divorce is ideal for our Texas readers who don't have a lot of issues that they can't resolve, but don't have a clear-cut divorce either. It usually helps to let people know to think of a collaborative divorce as a sort of middle-of-the-road divorce.

Our Texas readers who have followed this couple might wonder what led to the break up.
