You Know What You Want, Get It with a Collaborative Divorce

If you and your spouse have reached the conclusion that the time has come to dissolve your marital union, but hold no animosity toward one another and simply want to divorce in the most efficient and effective way possible, while maintaining control over how your assets are divided and custody arrangements are reached, if children are involved, a collaborative divorce is your best option. Contact a Williamson County attorney who can assist you with a divorce agreement where you and your partner make the decisions rather than relying on a judge who doesn’t know you or your situation to determine what would be in your best interest.

In addition to maintaining control of your situation, a collaborative divorce will afford you and your soon-to-be-ex-spouse the opportunity to avoid the time and cost involved with long, drawn-out litigation. In fact, a collaborative divorce is so preferable to many couples that they wonder why other divorcing spouses do not contact a Williamson County attorney who can help them to take advantage of such an opportunity. However, a collaborative divorce is not for everyone because it requires that the spouses agree ahead of time to resolve any differences that arise rather than pursuing litigation if things become heated. There is also a level of maturity and responsibility that is necessary for a collaborative divorce to be successful and not every couple has the fortitude necessary for such an endeavor.

However, for those willing to engage in responsible and mature disclosure of their assets and to work toward an agreement that is mutually agreeable, collaborative divorce has decided advantages over going to a Williamson County courtroom. One of the most obvious benefits is the fact that a collaborative divorce will most likely save you money in attorney fees. In addition, the agreement will be one that you and your partner have reached together rather than one that is decreed by the courts. Often an agreement that is reached by compromise is to be preferred over one that seems force, even when the outcomes are similar. Your Williamson County attorney will work with you on arriving at an agreement requires a minimum of compromise for either of you.

If you will be petitioning the Williamson County courts for a divorce, but simply want the court to finalize an agreement that you and your partner have already reached, consult with a divorce attorney who has experience in handling collaborative divorces successfully. Your attorney will review your circumstances to ensure that a collaborative divorce can serve your interests and will work with you to achieve your goals.
