What is Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative Divorce is a process where the parties and their respective lawyers agree to resolve their differences outside of court. This is possible when both parties openly share all of the information needed to resolve their pending issues and agree to work out their differences. There are some pros and cons to collaborative divorce. However, we have found that the collaborative law process can make legal cases, such as divorce, more positive experiences for all parties. Many clients actually prefer collaborative divorce for a number of reasons.

The benefits of collaborative divorce are many. Our clients who have opted to utilize the collaborative divorce process have found that the collaborative approach can

  • allow you to make your own decisions and remain in control
  • cost less than taking your case to court
  • preserve relationships with your spouse
  • provide more privacy

In addition to three of our attorneys being board certified, many of them are trained in the process for collaborative divorce in Texas. The attorney being trained and having experience is important for those seeking this approach. Please review attorney bios for this information.

    “Need a good, trustworthy and dependable lawyer? Well Duane Coker is your man!”
    I have only been through a divorce once in my life and I thought I would hire a "big name" lawfirm in Dallas to handle my case. Well long story short, all the "big name" lawfirm did was rake me over the coals for money then dropped me like a bad habit after they sucked me dry! I immediately started looking for another lawyer locally in the Denton area and was referred to Duane Coker. I was reffered to Duane by another lawyer that doesn't specialize in divore or family law and was told he would treat me right. Well they were right! He made me feel very comfortable and told the the honest truth about things. He saw what my previous lawyer did to me and what my wife's attorney was doing to me. I am so glad he took my case and got my divorce finalized! He was very up front with things and kept me in loop on everything. The only regret I have is I should have used Duane from the begining! It would of had saved me thousands of dollars and a lot less headaches. I can't say enough good things about Duane and his staff. What a "true" lifesaver they were to me!

    “Thank you Shelby & Rachel!”

    When I first contacted this firm, I was unsure. I was unsure on many things. I had a set of unique circumstances where I needed to seek a change for the safety of my son but due to something that is somewhat new territory. Shelby was upfront w/ me about both the positive & the negative possible outcomes but let me tell you – Shelby (and Rachel) fought for us.

    There was NOT one moment in time that I felt ignored, dismissed or unimportant; Moreover, I have severe, high anxiety & rather than punish me for it, Shelby & Rachel were understanding, comforting, logical & proactive EVERY STEP of the way. It was like I showed up, threw everything I had on a table while being a sobbing mess – they looked at every piece, held my hand & told me it would be okay. The entire system is long & draining but when we got to our trial date, Shelby was ON FIRE. My faith in him never waivered but that day in court, when we were finally through, I could’ve flown. Shelby (of course w/ the help of his right hand, Rachel!) was absolutely in his element & he stood up for us in all the ways my spirit needed to protect my son. I have shed more tears than I will EVER admit during the entire process but even during my madness, Shelby & Rachel were kind, uplifting & our WARRIORS in the courtroom.

    When I did my phone set up for a consultation, I told them I needed someone aggressive. When you first talk with them, they are so sweet! You’ll think: okay, these are not aggressive or mean people – BUT when the time comes, you can bet your bottom dollar they GO TO WORK. I cannot thank Shelby & Rachel enough for the things they’ve helped my son & I with. They have kept my son SAFE!!!! There aren’t enough descriptive words in our vocabulary to accurately portray what they mean to me. If you want a damn good team – YOU WANT THEM. Thank you Shelby & Rachel! Dax & I love yall!!

    “Shelby Hart is the absolute best!”
    It is with enthusiasm that I recommend Shelby Hart for any family law situation you may have. From the moment I had my consultation, Shelby and his entire team took care of every element of my divorce. His extreme professionalism combined with his sheer intelligence, talent and compassion makes him a force to be reckoned with.

    “It was a pleasure working with Attorney Sheba George.”

    It was a pleasure working with Attorney Sheba George. She was diligent and thorough with each detail on an update of a name change. You can count on her to get the job right.

    “Would highly recommend.”
    I would highly recommend Jacqueline Canon and all of her staff. She and her staff worked very hard on my case for the past 3 years and never let me feel alone or out of the loop. It was a very long and tiring process, but was made easy by the professionalism, care and concern for myself and my family. There is nothing that I would not trust this office with, and while I hope that I don't have to hire them again, I would in a heartbeat.
