McKinney Family Lawyers and Estate Planning Attorneys You Can Trust, Answers You Can Build On

While some family-related legal issues require judicial intervention, in many cases, spouses, partners, parents, grandparents and other family members will be able to resolve their differences without needing to go to court. When going to court is necessary, in some cases (such as when seeking protection against domestic violence or an adult name change), with the right legal representation, the process can simply be a formality. In all cases, our McKinney family lawyers and estate planning attorneys focus on pursuing the most-efficient method of meeting our clients’ needs, and we work closely with our clients to understand any practical or family considerations that may impact the method of resolution.

  • Out-of-Court Negotiation – Oftentimes, out-of-court negotiation will be the least contentions and most cost-effective method of resolving a family law or estate planning dispute. When going to court is not in anyone’s best interests, working together to craft an amicable solution can provide the certainty and closure that everyone needs to move on.
  • Mediation – Mediation is a method of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that allows disagreeing family members to come to terms without asking a judge to make decisions for them. With the assistance of a neutral mediator, the family members explore creative ways to resolve their differences out of court.
  • Collaborative Law – Collaborative law is a method of dispute resolution that is unique to the family setting, and that can be highly effective for divorcing spouses and family members facing a wide range of other family law matters. Working under the structure of a binding commitment not to go to court, the disputing parties negotiate with the help of experts and advisors (such as social workers and accountants) to find a mutually-agreeable path forward.
  • Litigation – When out-of-court methods fail, disputing family members can go to court to secure and enforce their legal rights. From obtaining property rights in a divorce to enforcing a former spouse or partner’s child support obligations, when necessary, litigation can be an effective method for obtaining the outcome you desire.
  • Filings in Court – Certain types of estate and family law matters involve court filings, but will not necessarily involve contentious courtroom proceedings. From obtaining approval for a divorce settlement agreement to filing for a name change or disputing a will, whenever you need to go to court for a family law matter, it is best to have an experienced attorney by your side.

Estate Planning is not a sideline practice for NN - it is one of the cornerstones of our practice. Effective planning is a process that goes far beyond the production of documents. A complete estate plan begins with a conversation about your personal goals and wishes, followed by a discussion of pertinent family matters and a detailed financial analysis. It does not end until the plan has been fully implemented, from signing documents to re-titling assets and updating beneficiary designations.

Hear What Our Clients Have To Say

"Myself and my husband recently relocated to Texas and had to make a new will. We consulted with April Nordhaus regarding wills, probates and creating a revocable trust. April made a very difficult subject easy and straight forward. With April's help we successfully created a will and a revocable trust. April was really thorough in talking us through it. She explained everything in an easy to understand language with warmth and personality yet still maintaining a high standard of professionalism. We highly recommend April Nordhaus."
