Collaborative Law and Mediation
The conventional process of divorce or other family law matters can drive
parties -already separated from each other – even farther apart. It takes a
toll on individual dignity, and often children suffer the most. Collaborative law
presents a more humane, respectful choice for Houston divorces. It is a
process in which the parties and their counsel agree in writing to make a
good faith attempt to reach a mutually-agreeable settlement without court intervention. Working together, they craft a way to keep their marriage
together, dissolve their marriage, or resolve any family law matter in a
way that considers everyone’s needs and minimizes conflict.
Collaborative law allows couples to resolve family law issues themselves without entering a courtroom where a judge or jury determines how an issue will be settled. As such, collaborative law places couples in charge of their own fate, providing them with a forum to discuss and negotiate terms mutually
agreeable to all involved. Hiller Law assists and represents clients throughout the collaborative law process to ensure their interests and rights are protected. As your lawyer, Mr. Hiller helps you evaluate the pros and cons of any proposed settlement, alerting
