Looking for Support from an Experienced Collaborative Divorce Lawyer in Austin?
Do you need a divorce but don’t desire the courtroom drama or expense? A divorce may end your spousal relationship, but your co-parenting relationship will continue.
With the traditional dissolution of the marriage process, you are leaving your future up to the court. This can be unbelievably stressful and costly. There is a different way.
Depending on your individual situation, couples separating amicably may benefit from collaborative divorce. In Texas, collaborative divorce strives to strengthen your post-divorce parenting relationship. As opposed to litigation that focuses on assigning blame and looks backward.
At Law Office of Nikki Hudman, our lead attorney covers all areas of family law and focuses on collaborative divorce cases. We strive to work together, focusing on end results that protect everyone’s best interests. We keep your children and their future in mind throughout the entire process.

Texas requires couples to pursue mediation or collaboration whenever possible. At Law Office of Nikki Hudman, we encourage our clients to be an active part of the process. When you share your goals and desires, we can help you come to a mutually beneficial agreement. You can determine your future, rather than a judge.

How Does Collaborative Divorce Work?
This process goes as follows:
- Each spouse hires their own attorney
- Each spouse holds private meetings with their respective attorneys to determine areas of compromise
- All parties meet and work together until an agreement is reached and the divorce is finalized. This will likely require many meetings.
- Papers filed with courts. After the divorce agreement is reached the papers and settlement agreement are filed with the family court.
