How Are Child Custody and Property Division Handled in a Collaborative Divorce?

Sarah Aminzadeh Milinsky | March 5, 2024

In a Collaborative Divorce, spouses negotiate outside of court to reach a settlement that works for both parties. Each spouse will need an experienced Collaborative Divorce lawyer to guide them through the process, but neutral parties will also be involved in helping you to deal with challenging issues like child custody and property division.

During a Collaborative Divorce, a mental health professional can be called upon to help resolve disagreements surrounding child custody. This neutral third party will work with both spouses to develop a parenting plan that addresses each parent’s rights and responsibilities and is in the best interests of the child or children involved.

Similarly, spouses going through a Collaborative Divorce will often benefit from having a neutral financial professional help them untangle their finances and ensure that property division is carried out in a way that all parties can agree upon.

If you’re considering a Collaborative Divorce, our experienced Texas divorce attorneys can walk you through the process and help you decide whether it’s right for you. Give us a call today to set up a consultation with one of our lawyers.
