In Texas, Collaborative Law is a new and innovative dispute resolution process. It is non-adversarial. The parties and their attorneys dedicate themselves to resolving all disputes fairly and equitably without Court intervention. All matters that require Court approval are negotiated and both parties must be in full agreement before anything is presented to the Court.
In Minnesota and California — and other jurisdictions — the process has been in place for as long as ten years and it is an overwhelming success. Instead of being adversaries, the parties and their respective attorneys work as a team with full disclosure, truthfulness, cooperation, professionalism and compassion to resolve their differences.
