Making the decision to end a marriage can be difficult for a Texas resident. Most people expect that their unions will truly last until death parts them from their spouses, and for divorce to become a necessary component in a relationship a person may feel as though they have in some way failed. However, divorce is not a sign of failure, but rather an option for individuals who are in need of an alternate path to lifelong happiness.
Even within the process of divorce, a person may have options for how much involvement they want in the decision-making that is necessary to end a marriage. While a traditional divorce accomplished through the courts may allow a person to offer input to a judge who will ultimately rule on matters such as custody, support, and property settlement, a mediated divorce can give a party more direct involvement is settling their own matters.
In order to accomplish a mediated divorce, the parties to the proceedings must find a divorce mediator to work with them. Attorney Leslie Hope serves as both an attorney for men and women who wish to end their marriages through the courts and also a mediator for couples that wish to work together to bring their relationships to a close.
