Hays County Collaborative Law Attorney
Maintaining Dignity and Mutual Respect in Divorce
Collaborative law is an important service we offer to our divorce clients at The Law Office of Milena Christopher. This type of legal service is a relatively new method of alternative dispute resolution used to handle divorce issues.
There are many advantages to a collaborative divorce. These typically include being:
- Cost effective;
- Faster than traditional divorce;
- Private and Confidential;
- Focused on conflict resolution; and
- Easier on family members, especially children.
To schedule your appointment, call our firm today at (512) 858-8253! We represent collaborative divorce cases throughout Hays County, Travis County, Blanco County & the surrounding Central Texas areas!
Offering Considerate Collaborative Divorce Solutions
Even if couples have a hard time seeing eye to eye, collaborative divorce can help create a calming atmosphere that may allow for peaceful resolution. It may even result in a "friendly divorce," preparing the parties to remain on respectful terms in future years.
Collaborative law is not for everyone. Attorney Christopher does not recommend this solution in situations where there is considerable distrust or any type of intimidation or power struggle between the parties. If the couple is uniquely suited for collaborative law, it can be an outstanding solution. Trust your attorney to help you make the right decision.
Collaborative law is especially well suited to couples who can communicate and want to preserve a positive parenting relationship for the sake of their children. The process requires a level of trust because everything is open to discovery, including bank accounts and other assets. If needed, the use of specialists can help, for example, with financial or psychological issues.
One of the key reasons for choosing collaborative divorce over traditional methods is that judges do not make the ultimate decisions - the divorcing couple does. Another key reason is time; the average collaborative divorce takes 17 weeks to complete, while a litigated divorce may take up to 17 months or longer!
