How We Help Our Clients Reach Resolution During the Divorce Process Our Frisco divorce attorneys want our clients to achieve their goals throughout the divorce process in the least stressful, most cost-efficient manner possible. Every situation is unique, and we often recommend: Negotiation. Your attorney will engage in direct negotiations on your behalf with your spouse’s attorney to attempt to reach a complete resolution and achieve the goals you desire. Collaborative divorce. In a collaborative divorce, both spouses retain separate lawyers whose only job is to help the parties settle their disputes. Both spouses work together in good faith to reach an agreement without the use of a mediator, judge, jury or courtroom. Divorce mediation. Your attorney represents you in negotiations using a third-party neutral that is specifically trained in family law conflict resolution. Many divorce and custody cases are resolved using this process. Mediation provides more privacy than the public courtroom and no public record is made of the discussions during mediation. Our family law attorneys have resolved over 3,000 divorce and family law cases through mediation. Additionally, our firm has experienced and professional third-party neutral mediators who can assist non-clients in resolving their divorce or family law case. Our average settlement success rate is 97.4 percent. Mediation can save you thousands in attorney’s fees and resolve your case faster than going to trial. Trial. When trial is the best or only option to get the results you need, we will aggressively fight for you. Our team of experienced divorce and family law litigators have the talent and the grit to make sure you are heard. The courtroom is often not the best option in a family law matter, but you deserve a team that knows how to navigate it if that is what is required. Why You Should Have an Experienced Divorce Attorney on Your Side Many critical, far-reaching personal, financial and legal issues must be resolved during the divorce process. At Albin Oldner Law, PLLC, we help our clients navigate through these issues, like: Child Custody We know that you want what is best for your child – and we do too. Our child custody lawyers focus on helping parents find a peaceful, private, and dignified way to resolve their custody and parenting time differences. If necessary, we are also prepared to fight for what is best for you and your child in the courtroom. Marital Property Division Marital property division has a long term impact on your future and, often, the future of your children. You want to protect what is yours and plan for your future. Texas is a community property state. This means that assets and debts acquired during the marriage (with a few exceptions) are considered community property. Examples of marital assets may include: Real property (i.e. house) Checking and saving accounts Personal property Retirement assets Income during the marriage Stock and brokerage accounts Stock options, bonuses and benefits earned during the marriage Closely held corporations, partnership interests and LLCs Our divorce lawyers have the depth and breadth of experience to help our clients to not only accurately value their marital property, but to advise our clients on what property division can be most financially beneficial and how to protect their assets once divided. Spousal Maintenance Let’s be honest, in Texas, it can be difficult to get a judge to order spousal maintenance because the deck is stacked against it. If you are concerned about alimony and believe it should be part of your divorce settlement agreement, know that our attorneys not only know the way to maneuver through the spousal maintenance maze, but also have the experience to know the tendencies of the courts. Spousal support can be a critical piece of the puzzle for a spouse that has been out of the job market and will likely face challenges when attempting to re-enter the workforce later in life.
