child-focused divorce

About Us

Both Matter is an Austin, Texas based organization devoted to improving the lives of coparents and their children.  Our mission is to streamline the creation of Parenting Plans and avoid custody litigation.

Parenting Plan Creation:

Creating a Parenting Plan in the midst of a divorce or separation is a daunting task. Tensions are high, trust is low and your child's future is at stake. Trying to manage financial, emotional and social changes while grieving the loss of the marriage puts undue pressure on parents who are trying to ensure a smooth transition for the children. Add to that moving to a new home and the process can feel like it will break you. Even parents with the best of intentions can get sucked into the the family court system vortex.

The Business of Raising a Child:

Coparenting after divorce requires setting aside hurt feelings towards your ex and starting a business with your coparent: the business of raising a child. Both Matter will help you stay laser-focused on the business of raising a child while giving you room to grieve. If you decide to litigate, please understand what you're signing yourself up for: potentially years of litigation and tens of thousands of wasted dollars.


Family law attorneys face perverse incentives: the more you fight the more money they make. Family court judges are incapable of determining the "best interests of the child" by definition: judges know next to nothing about the individual children whose futures they shape. They are incapable of making the best decision for an individual child because they will never possess the knowledge that you, the parents, possess. We help you build a future that's better for everyone involved while avoiding the devastation created by "family" courts.
