Collaborative Divorce in Texas

Youngblood Law, PLLC is excited to offer the collaborative divorce process for our clients.  Collaborative divorce is fundamentally and radically different from the traditional adversarial approach to divorce we all know.  Did you know that in a collaborative divorce the proceedings are private instead of being public record?  Did you know that many collaborative divorces are done in ten to twelve WEEKS, rather than the Texas average duration of fifteen MONTHS!  Did you know that safety is built into the collaborative process unlike traditional divorce where anyone can file and go to court?

There are many benefits to the collaborative divorce process, and at Youngblood Law, PLLC, we are always trying to find ways to do better, more valuable work for our clients.  We believe that for some clients, the collaborative divorce process is a spectacular option!  No, it’s not for everyone.  But if you or someone you know is facing a divorce and is interested in preserving relationships, conserving the marital estate, and focusing on the future rather than dwelling in the past, collaborative divorce might be for you.
