Family & Divorce Law
Family Law: A Difficult Set of Choices and Challenges
Many of our clients are concerned about the future, and how their lives will change after divorce, separation, a change in child custody, or adoption. With a focus on minimizing the exposure and pain often associated with family law disputes, Albin Roach encourages clients to consider other forms of dispute resolution.
One approach allows individuals to work outside of court in a private proceeding, working to resolve every detail of a family law dispute quickly and cost-effectively. In collaborative law, each person is represented individually by an attorney, and outside experts are called upon to offer their expertise in financial matters, legal matters affecting children, and other matters.
The Plano and Frisco family law attorneys at Albin Roach are experienced in collaborative law, offering clients another option to settle disputes. We recognize the intensely personal nature of divorce, child custody, and other family law issues — and the need that our clients have for someone to listen, someone to help them understand what their legal options are, and someone who can protect their rights and interests while a lasting resolution is sought.
How do you take one household and successfully turn it into two separate homes? How can you protect your children and protect your own rights at the same time? Is there a dignified, private way to resolve the issues of divorce, child custody, relocation, property division, or paternity?
Albin Roach recognizes that the outcome of a family law dispute can affect the entire family unit for generations. We also recognize the intensely personal nature of divorce, child custody, and other family law issues — and the need that our clients have for someone to listen, someone to help them understand what their legal options are, and someone who can protect their rights and interests while a lasting resolution is sought.
This is what we do.
What Is the Right Course of Action?
In truth, the answer to this question depends greatly on the nature of your situation and your personal preferences. The important thing to recognize is that there are options available and strategies that do not have to lead straight to the courthouse door. The family law attorneys at our divorce law firm have extensive experience helping families resolve issues in several ways:
- Avoiding divorce — In appropriate cases, we put clients who are interested in trying to reconcile and restore their marriages in touch with qualified counselors whom we know and trust.
- Negotiation — Our ability to work well with attorneys for the other side is another skill we bring to the table and something that often leads to out-of-court results.
- Alternative dispute resolution — Using the divorce mediation or collaborative law approaches can also be very productive.
- Family law litigation — When litigation is required, we aggressively represent the interests of our clients and zealously advocate for the best interests of the children involved.
In every case, regardless of the course chosen and methods used, our lawyers work diligently to achieve the goals our clients have set while preserving their rights and dignity throughout the process.
