Collin County Family Law Services

Comprehensive Representation For McKinney, Plano, Frisco And Surrounding Areas Since 1987

As a Board Certified family lawyer, Diana L. Porter offers clients comprehensive family law services. Since 1987, she has helped families throughout Collin County, Texas, with:

  • Divorce: Divorce cases are as unique as the individuals involved and the needs of each client vary greatly. Ms. Porter approaches each divorce matter in a manner designed to meet her clients' needs efficiently and effectively. Whether your divorce is amicable or contested, whether it involves a simple or complex property division, children, support, spousal maintenance or other issues, Ms. Porter has the experience and expertise needed to assist you.
  • Child-related issues: Family law matters involving children are particularly challenging. Resolving child-related issues requires the utmost attention to the security and best interests of the children as well as to the protection of the parent's rights. Diana Porter has extensive experience representing clients in divorce or parental separation cases involving child custody and visitation, child support, post-divorce modification and relocation, grandparents' rights, paternity and other custody issues for unmarried parents.
  • Other family law services: In addition to divorce and child-related matters, Ms. Porter provides skilled assistance for those seeking prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, annulments and other family law concerns. As with all her areas of practice, she provides honest counsel and guidance tailored to your individual situation.

The Collaborative Law Process

Collaborative Law is a relatively new approach to resolving divorce and family law matters. The process recognizes that family law cases are uniquely personal and potentially damaging for the parties and their children. Through the Collaborative Law process, the parties can agree to remove their case from what can be a combative litigation process and fully commit to settling out of court.

It is a common misconception that a Collaborative Law case is the same as an amicable divorce case or a case where the parties already have an agreement. This is not correct. Collaborative Law is a specific process with rules designed to lead the parties to a resolution of the disputed issues in their case. Each party is required to have his or her own attorney and the attorneys help guide the parties through the process toward an agreement.

To find out if Collaborative Law is an appropriate process for your divorce or post-divorce case, contact Diana L. Porter. Ms. Porter is trained in the Collaborative Law process and a founding member of the Collaborative Law Alliance of Collin County. Where appropriate, she seeks amicable resolutions through negotiation, mediation or Collaborative Law. However, as a highly respected trial attorney, she is always prepared to represent her clients in court if need be.
