Collaborative Family Law

In collaborative divorce, each party is still represented by a lawyer, but the spouses and attorneys sign an agreement not to litigate. By removing the specter of a courtroom battle, both sides can commit to working out an acceptable settlement covering property, custody and visitation, child support, and related issues. Collaborative family law often includes child psychologists, counselors, and other professionals to help settle family disputes and arrive at a resolution that addresses everyone's interests.

Collaborative law has many advantages over divorce litigation:

  • The confidential proceeding is not public, so your dirty laundry is not aired or published
  • There is no adversarial discovery or deposition process
  • Collaboration is quicker and less expensive
  • Children are spared the additional trauma of being caught in the middle

Family Mediation

In mediation, our attorney acts as a neutral third party to help couples or parents reach a divorce settlement or custody agreement. If agreement is reached, we draft it and submit it to the court for approval. If divorce mediation does not produce an agreement, you are free to proceed to litigation.

Experienced Legal Counsel

Collaborative family law or a mediator is not right for every situation — both sides must be committed and willing to compromise. With more than 15 years of experience and Board Certification in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, John J. Pfister, Jr. is eminently qualified to advise you on your legal options and watch out for your best interests.
