Is collaborative law right for you? In this video, attorney P. Lindley Bain discusses this alternate resolution to divorce.  Collaborative law a highly structured dispute resolution process that is geared towards helping families reach a resolution to their divorce without going to court. In Texas, more than 90% of divorce cases end in a settlement before a final trial, so to work a case as if it's going to final trial is very costly and inefficient.  Collaborative law is for the couple who values their family and their relationship with their children, no matter how old. It offers an option for those wanting to come up with an alternative to "cookie-cutter" divorce cases. When is Collaborative Law a Good Option in Divorce?

Should you consider a cohabitation agreement? In this video, Dallas family lawyer P. Lindley Bain discusses what this type of agreement entails and how you could benefit from one.  A cohabitation agreement is an agreement between two non-married partners who live together and have a marriage-like relationship, but choose not to marry.  There are many reasons why couples should consider having a cohabitation agreement. One of the strongest reasons is that it specifically confirms that the couple is not married and sets out how things will be resolved in the event of dissolution. This is important because if the relationship dissolves, one partner may try to falsely claim they were common-law married, which can lead to a great deal of stress and cost.
