Our attorneys at Raggio & Raggio, PLLC understand that while the goal of every divorce case may be the same, the legal paths that our clients take are not.
Over the last five decades, our nationally recognized family law firm has guided men and women in the Dallas area through the divorce process using collaborative law techniques as well as traditional litigation.
I had another leading lawyer represent me in my collaborative divorce action in Collin County. There were some loose ends from that divorce agreement and my former spouse sued me. Ken Raggio was able to come in and analyze the situation, and then he took immediate, effective steps to get the dispute resolved without anybody having to go to court. I am grateful for his quick, efficient, effective, and decisive actions. — Dr. S.B., M.D., satisfied client
Resolving Your Texas Divorce Case In A Manner That Best Fits Your Needs
When our clients come to us seeking legal advice and representation in their divorce, our top priority is to learn about their circumstances and help them understand how they can achieve their objectives.
Often, people equate divorce with drawn out, expensive and emotionally draining courtroom battles that often lead to less than desirable outcomes. While some cases have the potential to end this way, it is certainly not the rule.
Collaborative Law and Mediation Versus Traditional Litigation
The Texas Legislature has made Texas the first state to recognize a new way of divorcing called collaborative law. Collaborative divorce is a different process of burying a dead marriage that is often less painful and scarring both to the spouses and to their children.
Under Texas’ collaborative law statute, a husband and a wife agree to an open, transparent process of negotiating the terms to end their marriage. Rather than public hearings in divorce court to settle their differences, the parties sit together with their two lawyers in a series of private conferences.
The overall goal is to settle property, custody and support questions in a way that recognizes and honors the interests of each spouse and gives the two families that result from the divorce maximum chances of success and happiness.
Mediation is another form of alternative dispute resolution that can lead to a successful negotiation of the terms of the divorce, child custody or other family law case.
Our attorneys at Raggio & Raggio, PLLC recognize that not every divorce can be amicably resolved. Whether you choose traditional litigation or collaborative law, we have the experience, compassion and legal ability to effectively handle your case and help you reach your goals.
