Denton Divorce Attorney


The Law Office of Gary Kollmeier provides comprehensive and experienced Family Law and Dispute Resolution Services.

Pre-Marital and Post-Marital Agreements

Premarital Agreements allow each party to plan ahead for the eventual dissolution of marriage by death or divorce and will provides protection from the creation of community property and/or protection of separate property during marriage. 

A postmarital agreement is similar to a premarital agreement, other than it is executed after the marriage to effect a post marriage partition of property.   The legal effect can be the same in any case and the rules of enforceability are also generally the same. 

Partition Agreements

A post marriage Partition Agreement can convert Community Property to Separate, or Separate to Community for estate planning purposes or preservation of assets in contemplation of divorce or protection from creditors.           

Collaborative Law

Family Law and Probate Disputes can resolved using the emerging field of Collaborative Law, which encourages cooperative and non-adversarial techniques to help parties to the dispute reach a settlement.   Collaborative Law is a solution-oriented alternative to traditional divorce. Instead of focusing on getting the largest financial reward no matter the human or financial cost, the parties try to find "win-win" solutions that meet the needs of both sides.  All participants agree to work together respectfully, honestly and in good faith. No one may go to court, or even threaten to do so, as long as they are in the Collaborative Process. In the unlikely event that a party feels that court is a better alternative, the Collaborative Law process terminates and both spouses must hire new lawyers to take their case to court.
