Collaborative Law

Divorce can often be perceived as a long drawn-out battle between two feuding spouses. Visions of dueling attorneys throwing out accusations and demands abound. Worries of costly legal fees come to mind. In reality, marital dissolution does not have to be this way. At Albano Law, we are proud to offer our clients alternatives to the typical divorce process.

The Benefits of Collaborative Law in Divorce

Collaborative law is a relatively new concept and is a branch of alternative dispute resolution. In this process, a divorcing couple has the opportunity to work with their respective attorneys and each other outside of the court system. This enables the parties to potentially have a more civil separation, save on legal fees and resolve their issues in a more efficient manner. Our clients find this method especially beneficial when there are children involved. The parties, attorneys and collaborative law team work together to amicably transition the family to a post-divorce co-parenting relationship. This process allows the parents (rather than the courts) to maintain control over decisions affecting their family as the family transitions through the divorce. Many find that since divorcing parents will have an ongoing co-parenting relationship after the divorce, it is in the family's best interest to remain civil and work together to find amicable solutions during the divorce. Often people get frustrated because they cannot resolve their issues by themselves at the kitchen table. Having objective parties such as skilled attorneys and a collaborative team to assist you can take out the emotion and successfully help you and your spouse reach a final agreement.

Attorney Christine Albano is professionally associated with both the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas and the Collaboration Law Alliance of Collin County.
