Rated among the best female divorce lawyers in the state of Texas.
WE ARE NOT A BULLDOG LAWYER. BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE TO BE.
Years of litigation have shown us that when divorce escalates into battle, no one wins. Unfortunately, many of our cases involve aggressive divorce lawyers on the other side. However, by focusing on conversation and collaboration rather than bulldog litigation tactics, we can minimize conflict when emotions flare and strategically negotiate victory through settlement.
Instead, we practice mediation and collaborative law. Both options have pros and cons, and we’ll work with you to explore what option will work best for you and your unique situation.
What is Divorce Mediation?
When you want to keep your private life out of the courtroom drama, then traditional, litigated divorce is not an option. Mediation is a process in which a neutral third party facilitates communication to help the parties reach a settlement. Mediation can be part of the traditional, litigation-based divorce process and can keep things from escalating to trial.
Are You a Bulldog Lawyer?
At Alexandra Geczi, PLLC, our team of experienced divorce attorneys understands better than most what happens you put two bulldogs in a ring together. Years of litigation have shown us that when divorce escalates into battle, no one wins. Unfortunately, many of our cases involve aggressive divorce lawyers on the other side. However, by focusing on conversation and collaboration rather than bulldog litigation tactics, we can minimize conflict when emotions flare and strategically negotiate victory through settlement.
What is Collaborative Law?
In contrast to mediation, collaborative law is a formal process outside of traditional litigation and involves additional third parties – such as financial advisors and mental health professionals – to guide the parties to an agreement. Both options have pros and cons, and an experienced divorce lawyer can work with you to explore your options.
FAQs from Working Moms
Will I Have to Pay My Husband Spousal Maintenance or Alimony?
The Texas Family Code sets out specific guidelines for when spousal maintenance is appropriate. If you were the breadwinner, you may have to pay your husband spousal maintenance if he does not have the resources to provide for his “minimum reasonable needs.” Our team of skilled attorneys have the knowledge and experience to minimize the exposure to paying spousal maintenance for women breadwinners.
As the Primary Income Earner, Will I Lose Custody of My Children?
The Texas Family Code provides guidance on custody and visitation, keeping the best interest of the child in mind. There are a variety of factors that courts look at in determining who is the “primary parent.” Factors include primary caretaking responsibilities, work schedules, and the person’s ability to spend time with the children. The Code also allows for mutually agreed upon visitation schedules, and our team of divorce professionals can work with you to collaborate and create possession schedules and co-parenting plans that work for the whole family.
