Coronavirus, Divorce and Family Law:

We are open!

Higdon Hardy & Zuflacht is taking a safe but proactive approach to the Coronavirus situation in our law practice. We are working every day to represent our family law clients. At the same time, we are following best practices to protect the health of our employees and our clients. To read more please Click Here

All our employees understand that they should not be working if they are sick, and in particular, that they should not be at our office while sick.

To further protect our employees and our clients we are encouraging meetings by phone, Zoom, Skype or similar means. We have represented clients from out of state and out of the country in this manner for many years. Our clients often prefer this to traveling to our office.

We are also working with the divorce and civil courts, as well as opposing counsel, to arrange court appearances, settlement conferences, and other litigation events remotely whenever possible.

To further protect the health of all concerned, all our attorneys and staff have the technology and capability to work on cases and with clients from home as well as at the office. Your phone calls will be returned. Your emails will be answered. Your case deadlines will be met.

The days ahead may be a challenge. We do not yet know the extent to which particular courts will curtail trials or even the extent to which HHZ will have clients and other guests come to our office. We will continue to work to take care of our clients’ cases and to take on new matters and clients. We will simply manage your case in less traditional, more technology-driven ways, that are safer for your health and ours.

Thank you for your trust.

Trust Our Experience. Family Law is what we do.

All of the partners at our firm are Board Certified in Family Law - less than 1% of Texas lawyers achieve this distinction.

San Antonio Collaborative Law Attorneys

Divorce is almost always going to be a difficult process. Many people going through a divorce rightfully fear the toll court proceedings can take on their family, especially if there are children involved. Collaborative law is defined by a number of different methods that put your divorce in your own hands. An option that will best meet the needs of you and your family may include hiring an attorney to facilitate discussion rather than taking your situation to trial where a judge will decide the fate of your family. Spouses are provided with an environment to comfortably discuss the terms of their divorce through interest-based negotiation with the guidance of a collaborative divorce attorney. As a result, the terms of the divorce will better reflect the individual and family needs of both sides.

Each of our San Antonio collaborative law attorneys at Higdon, Hardy & Zuflacht, L.L.P. is Board Certified in Family Law by the Board of Legal Specialization. We pride ourselves in providing compassionate and respectful dialogue with our clients because we understand when you come to our firm, you’re seeking support in one of the most trying situations for any family. You can trust that, with our experience, we can provide you with legal counsel you need in this difficult time.

Benefits of Collaborative Divorce

The most notable benefit to collaborative divorce is it often provides a better environment for preserving the relationship, which can often be lost in the heat of a bitter trial proceeding. A divorce does not mean the end of a family when children are involved, and collaborative law helps each party retain their respect for one another. In addition, when the family gets to decide for themselves the terms of the divorce rather than defaulting to the decisions of a judge, there is less room for resentment and anger. Collaborative law proceeding puts you in control of your own life. Here are a few other benefits experienced by couples going through collaborative proceedings:

  • Collaborative divorce is far less expensive than going to trial
  • The process is completed much quicker
  • It is entirely private, as opposed to trials which are a matter of public record

Divorce already imposes a great deal of stress onto a family and a collaborative session may mitigate some of that emotional toll. When discussing divorce with your family and ex-spouse, consider collaboration over trial proceedings.
