As your family law and divorce attorney, my focus is on helping you find peaceful solutions without going to court. After having been to court thousands of times, I know negotiation is almost always better than having a court hearing. My approach to cases has evolved considerably in the last 30 years. I have learned collaborative law and mediation are very effective ways to resolve issues. In such a less stressful environment, we are able to be creative and less destructive of relationships. From my office in Fort Worth, Texas, I represent clients throughout the area, including those located in Tarrant County and Parker County. Tell me if you're looking for a way to avoid some of the conflicts that often arise when marriages end. I can represent you in a collaborative divorce and show you how it can be easier to work toward a mutually beneficial solution when both voices are being heard. Even in a litigated divorce, we can focus on sharing information and getting into negotiations rather than just gearing up for a fight.MORE ABOUT ME

If you've decided your marriage needs to come to an end, make the process as peaceful as possible. Reach out to us at The Price Law Firm if you find yourself in any of the following situations:
Facing an unexpected divorce after a long-term marriage. You have tried to work on issues, but they haven't gotten better, or maybe you were unaware of problems brewing. Now you are wondering how to prepare for the future.
Facing special financial, health or other problems after a divorce. There are unique issues that become more important as you age. A collaborative divorce can address them more directly than a traditional, cookie-cutter divorce does.
Wanting a private, low-profile divorce because of your family, business or position in the community. Collaborative divorce provides a confidential, private process that respects both parties.
Seeking a peaceful divorce. You may have children and don't want to destroy relationships. Plus, you would probably like to avoid expensive, long-drawn-out processes. Remember, the more you fight, the more it will likely cost you.
Needing someone to review and explain your divorce papers. This includes explaining what the legal terms mean and how the procedures work in practice. We can provide plain English translations of the legalese and can explain how complicated provisions actually work.
Needing someone to advise you in mediation. Mediation can be a very effective way to resolve your case. Representation during the mediation, or at least advice from a lawyer, would improve your outcome.
Needing a neutral mediator in your case. Mediation can help you and your spouse come to agreements. Remember, though, a mediator cannot give legal advice during mediation and a mediator cannot draw up the paperwork for you.
Needing help understanding and negotiating a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement. These agreements can bring clarity to relationships, but can also spotlight hidden conflicts between the parties. Working in a Collaborative context provides a safe environment to work through the issues and perhaps improve the relationship.
Facing a divorce in a same-sex marriage. Because the law is still evolving, there can be difficult issues, especially if children are involved.
