  • If I want a divorce and my spouse doesn’t, can I still get divorced?

    Yes, as stated above, the court will grant a divorce if either party swears under oath that the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities that has destroyed the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation. Likewise, a party to a lawsuit cannot unilaterally obstruct the lawsuit; meaning, once a person is legally notified of the proceedings, the proceedings will go on with or without him/her.

  • What is collaborative law?

    Collaborative law is a relatively new process which allows both parties to a divorce to meet together with their attorneys and advisors in order to work through the division of assets, conservatorship of children, and a number of other issues that arise during the course of a divorce. The collaborative process allows everyone to work together as a team to come to a solution without involving the court system.

    Our lawyers in Dallas are experts in the matter of collaborative law.
