What Type Of Divorce Proceeding Is Right For You?

There are two main processes that can be utilized during divorce – litigation and collaboration. Attorney Benouis is well-versed in both types of divorce, and can help evaluate which process best fits the nature of your case. She is effective in a courtroom if need be, and she is also a Master Credentialed Collaborative Divorce attorney who can guide you through the collaborative process.

Traditional Divorce

When people think of divorce, they often have the image of  a traditional, or litigated, divorce where each spouse has their own attorney. A divorce is litigated when spouses can’t agree on resolving issues like child support or how to divide property. This type of litigated divorce can drag out for months or sometimes even years. While traditional, or litigated, divorce is necessary and appropriate in some cases, couples can also choose a collaborative divorce.

Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce encourages spouses to settle their issues through negotiation versus litigation. It is based on respect and a mutual wish to come to an agreement without court involvement. Collaborative divorce can be a worthwhile alternative to traditional divorces, and Ms. Benouis, a board-certified attorney, is well-versed in the laws.

Regardless of which approach you choose, having a dedicated Austin divorce attorney on your side is in your best interest. Contact Benouis Law at 512-764-3932 to discuss your situation.
