Amicable Or "Do-It-Yourself" Divorce

Divorce Representation For Clients In McKinney, Plano, Frisco And Surrounding Areas Since 1987

Divorcing couples today may be overwhelmed by the information and advice available from friends, family, books, magazines, and of course, the Internet. Some of this information is helpful and accurate. Unfortunately, much of it is not accurate or not applicable to your specific situation.

If you are considering —

  • Negotiating a settlement with your spouse before hiring an attorney
  • Attending a mediation without an attorney
  • Representing yourself while your spouse has an attorney
  • Having one attorney represent both you and your spouse (this is not authorized in Texas)
  • Having one attorney just do the paperwork and not represent either party
  • A do-it-yourself, fill-in-the-forms divorce

— then your preparation should include a consultation with an experienced family law attorney. You must know your rights and responsibilities to protect your interests and your children's interests. You need the guidance of an experienced family law attorney. As an experienced, Board Certified family law attorney, Diana L. Porter can discuss your unique situation and what you need to know.
