Dallas lawyer Paula Lock Smyth offers knowledgeable, caring, and cost-effective legal guidance when you are unsure of the most appropriate option for ending your marriage. In some cases, viable alternatives to divorce may better suit your needs than more traditional options.
Depending on your personal goals and individual circumstances, we may recommend divorce alternatives such as legal separation, which can incorporate an agreement on child custody and separation of marital assets if necessary. Legal separation also allows for possible reconciliation of your differences, while giving you the time apart that you need to save your marriage.
In addition to being a zealous advocate in divorce litigation, Paula Lock Smyth is a skilled mediator and is experienced at navigating the collaborative law process.
Through these alternative dispute resolution processes, you and your spouse are able to come to an agreement on important issues arising in divorce including child support, spousal support and property division. Divorce mediation and collaborative law take less time and are less expensive than traditional litigation and allow you to maintain control, instead of leaving these decisions to a family court judge.
