Affordable Divorce Is An Option

Divorce can be expensive. Between calls to opposing counsel, filing fees and court time, you could easily spend a small fortune. It doesn't, however, have to be that way, and there is an alternative: Mediation.

Mediation gives you the opportunity to bypass the courts almost entirely. Armed with the legal knowledge that the state requires, you and I can work with your spouse to determine the most beneficial settlement possible for your case.

Affordable Divorce Is Possible

Mediation allows you to focus on what is important to you. Some attorneys focus on each issue separately, rather than taking the case as a whole.

Coming to an agreement that suits your family means considering all the needs involved and finding the best way to meet them. Perhaps mom wants weekends with the kids so she can go back to school and dad prefers weekdays because it leaves weekends open to coach soccer.

How Family Law Mediation Works

With mediation, you have the opportunity to negotiate something that works for you and your family. After all, you know the needs better than anyone — certainly better than any court could.

In addition, parents find that when they establish the parenting schedule and other family decisions, they are not only happier with it, they are more likely to abide by it. Whether child support, child custody or other family law matters, we would all rather choose our course than have the courts determine it for us.

A Word About Spousal Maintenance

The state of Texas has a unique approach to alimony/spousal maintenance. Rather than award a monthly payment to a former spouse, the legislature codified laws that allow for property division that leaves each spouse financially solvent and independent.

Property and assets, therefore, may not be split evenly. Again, with mediation, there is room to negotiate — to come to an agreement that benefits everyone as a whole.
