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. While this is definitely a positive for all involved, the divorce process can bring out many intense emotions, and it may be difficult to go through the collaborative divorce process without the help of a family law attorney who can bring an outside opinion and help you decide on the best course of action.

Even though collaborative divorces by their very design involve working with your spouse instead of battling it out in a courtroom, both parties should have their own legal representation that is looking out for their best interests. The collaborative divorce process is very different than the traditional divorce in that you will be deciding on the terms together instead of both sides presenting their arguments and leaving it for the court to decide. This means that you will need to have excellent communication skills and a solid understanding of the Texas laws.

A family law attorney can help during the collaborative divorce process by referring you to other resources, like financial planners and mental health professionals, who can provide an objective view on your divorce. At the Law Offices of Karen Cushman, we can also help you understand what to expect from the collaborative process and how to recognize when it isn't working out.

If you do find that a collaborative divorce is not possible for your particular situation, we can help you move your case forward all the way to trial if necessary. We understand that things doesn't always work out as expected, and we have the resources necessary to help you through your divorce from beginning to end.
