Looking at our current difficulties in communicating with one another in a civil manner on a national level, I think it is ever MORE important to communicate with each other on a personal level in an honest and civil way. When a couple reaches a decision to part ways, the first order of business is forgiveness and giving up finger-pointing, and the second order of business is finding allies who can help shepherd the legal process smoothly. I have practiced family law in Austin for long enough to remember how COMBATIVE the process could be in the bad old days. Thank goodness we now have a much improved COLLABORATIVE process where the two parties agree to civility and not to take their divorce into court in front of a stranger who may or may not have their best interests at heart. A collaborative team may also consist of a social worker/communications expert to help with a parenting plan (if children are involved) and a financial expert to help with the division of property.
As in the realm of family law, the realm of end of life planning also requires good and clear communication. After helping individuals and families in this area for years, I have a good idea of how to advise you in planning for a "good exit" and for the simple division and smooth inheritance of your property upon your death. This is essential in making things easy on your heirs.
In both these important areas of our lives, mindful consideration of alternatives, clear discussion with all players involved, and eventually reaching a workable decision to realize stated goals will be part of my goal in helping you. Delay can be a hazard and lead to more confusion. Don't delay in starting the planning process by contacting a knowledgeable professional soon. I am ready to assist you.
Do not hesitate to make a call today or soon to learn more about your options with collaborative divorce and/or end of life planning. Your peace of mind will increase as you begin the process.
