Divorce and Divorce Options
One of Life’s Most Difficult Choices
Making the decision to end a marriage is difficult and intensely personal. It is so difficult, in fact, that many people struggle with making it for months or even years before finally coming to a decision. Others don’t even know for certain that divorce is what they want before taking the step of talking to an attorney.
At Albin Roach, we understand how difficult making the decision to divorce is and how traumatic its consequences can be. We also know the law, the courts of Collin County and North Texas and most importantly, how to protect our clients’ rights in the process while preserving their dignity at the same time.
We are here to help.
Keeping All of Your Options Open
When appropriate, our Frisco and Plano divorce attorneys encourage clients to consider reconciliation and we are familiar with a number of experienced faith-based counselors who will work with families who want to restore the integrity of their marriage.
When making the marriage work is not a realistic option, the fact that our attorneys work very well with and are trusted by their peers in the legal community often goes a long way toward achieving satisfactory results simply through out-of-court negotiation.
If, for whatever reason, that does not happen, we can use methods such as mediation or the collaborative law approach. Our team includes several attorneys who are skilled and experienced with these alternative methods of dispute resolution and who are able to effectively represent and protect your rights and interests during those processes.
Having said all of this, we recognize that not every family situation can be resolved through anything other than in-court litigation. In these cases, you can depend on a Collin County divorce lawyer at our firm to advocate zealously for your rights under the law while providing you with candid, professional counsel based on experience and training.
Attorney and Contact Information
Our team includes respected family law advocate Laura Roach, who is widely-recognized as a leader in complex family law matters and an accomplished mediator who has facilitated the settlement of over 500 cases.
Many couples facing divorce are not aware of the full scope of legal options available. Today, there are several divorce options available that allow parties to end their marriage in a straightforward manner.
At Albin Roach, we help clients explore their divorce options based on their specific needs, wants, and goals. The most important thing our clients need to know is that there are options available and strategies that do not have to lead straight to the courthouse door.
During your initial consultation, we will explain your full scope of legal options, which may include:
- Mediation — A form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), mediation is a process that encourages parties to work together to resolve divorce-related issues. Each party is represented by an attorney, and a third-party neutral mediator guides the process.
- Collaborative law — A collaborative divorce allows the parties and their respective attorneys to meet privately to work through and resolve every detail of a divorce or family dispute quickly, cost-effectively and in a dignified manner. Outside professionals such as accountants, child care specialists, financial advisors, and others may be called upon to offer advice in their area of expertise.
- Litigation — If couples are unable to resolve their divorce-related disputes outside of court, the matters will be settled in court through divorce litigation. When litigation is required, our firm provides aggressive representation that protects the interests of our clients as well as their children.
