While she was traveling, Marilyn's husband, Jeff, canceled her credit cards. He also filed child endangerment charges against her. When she returned, authorities put her in a mental health care facility to protect her child. Marilyn was not insane, nor was she a danger to her child. Jeff was filing for divorce, and was legally positioning himself for control of their finances and custody of their young child.
Denton County Collaborative Professionals is a group of independent, unaffiliated professionals (lawyers, communication coaches, and financial professionals) with a wealth of experience. We’ve represented thousands of North Texas clients in divorces, custody disputes, and other legal matters. Too often we’ve witnessed the expense, anguish, and frustration that result from trying to resolve family problems in a court of law.
Now we offer you what we are convinced is a better way: The Collaborative Process.
Why Denton County Collaborative Professionals?
Each attorney, communication coach, and financial professional in this group is known to the others as a practitioner of skill and trustworthiness who will honor promises to negotiate in good faith and with full disclosure. The collaborative process is not for everyone, and there is no guarantee of success, but it just might be that “better way” for you.
