About Us

“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”
– Abraham Lincoln

Both Matter is an Austin, Texas based organization devoted to improving the lives of coparents and their children. Our mission is to help divorcing parents, committed to protecting their children, through Cooperative Divorce.

Cooperative Divorce

Dividing assets and charting a coparenting 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. Both Matter’s Cooperative Divorce process will help you come to an agreement with your coparent and move on to the business of raising a child.

The Business of CoParenting

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.
