Collaborative Divorce

Skilled Counsel from an Austin Divorce Lawyer

Collaborative divorce is an alternative to litigation for divorcing couples. Although sometimes the best course of action, litigation can often be unpredictable, expensive, inconvenient, and destructive to the personal relationships of those involved. A litigated divorce can pit good people against one another in the fight to win. The collaborative divorce process, on the other hand, involves working together with a team of professionals in order to negotiate terms that are equitable to both parties.

At Benouis Law, our Austin divorce attorney has more than 25 years of experience in family law, and has been certified as a specialist in the field by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. When you retain our firm, you can trust that you are hiring an attorney who is skilled, knowledgeable, and completely dedicated to your best interests.


Make sure your interests are protected. Contact our firm today at (512) 213-6779 to learn how we can help.

What Is the Collaborative Divorce Process?

The collaborative process allows divorcing couples to develop creative solutions to their situation, addressing their specific issues in a more holistic way. In a collaborative divorce, rather than taking positions and defending them, parties develop their interests and negotiate from them.

Collaborative divorce relies on:

  • Professionalism
  • Cooperation
  • Integrity

A collaborative divorce process focuses on the set of issues a couple has to resolve now and focuses on the future of the parties and family post-divorce.

Our Austin divorce lawyer is a Certified Family Law Specialist. Get started today by scheduling an initial consultation.

What Are the Advantages of Collaborative Divorce?

In most cases, results are predictable, the costs are less than litigation, and the scheduling of meetings is determined by agreement rather than by the court. Divorcing couples can respectfully and efficiently direct their resources towards a dignified parting of company and focus on how best to move forward. The end goal of collaborative divorce is a functioning, restructured family.

Although it is a different process from litigation, a collaborative divorce is still a divorce and tough issues are addressed. Sometimes how people proceed through a divorce is as or almost as important as the specific issues people deal with. The collaborative process provides a structured option to complete a divorce without going to court.
