When couples in Texas divorce, emotions often run high. This can sometimes lead to conflict in what might have otherwise been a straightforward, amicable divorce. This conflict might be caused by misunderstandings or a spouse who feels uncertain of what is happening, legally and socially. In these cases, a collaborative law approach might help.
By the time a lot of couples in Texas have decided to divorce, it is not unusual for both parties to be experiencing strong emotions. The stress associated with the breakdown of a marriage can make it difficult to talk through issues and come to reasonable agreements regarding property division, spousal support, and child custody.
So often, we hear divorce horror stories. A couple spends months, or even years, in court battling over assets, property and their own children. They drain their savings and neither party gets what he or she wants in the end. Children are left angry and hurt. No one wins.
The rule of law is what we follow in Texas and the rest of the United States. What that means is that everyone is subject to the laws of the country and the state in which they live. No one is above the law and it's supposed to apply equally to all.
