San Antonio Alternative Dispute Resolution Attorneys
Legally ending a marriage can be both an emotionally and financially taxing process, especially because many divorce proceedings occur in a traditional court setting. However, in recent years, a more popular option for the divorce process is alternative dispute resolution, which allows each individual the possibility of reaching an agreement without drudging through drawn-out court battles. This option can allow you to settle any disputes with your spouse away from the public setting of the court. Alternative dispute resolution offers a more private, expedited process that may result in higher satisfaction for both parties. In the case of family disputes, alternative dispute resolution can also make the well-being of children the top priority.

Types of Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative Dispute resolution is authorized through Title 7 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code. A court may, on its own motion or on the motion of a party, refer a pending dispute for resolution by an alternative dispute procedure. Our lawyers have experience with the following types of alternative dispute resolution:
Mediation uses a trained neutral mediator to attempt to resolve the dispute, while collaborative law is a hybrid process that involves each client bringing a trained lawyer to the table to negotiate the divorce. Either of these options could help you to retain control during your divorce proceedings.
