You already know what is involved in a traditional divorce: high conflict, high bills, high stress.
Now imagine an entirely different approach; the Collaborative Process. It’s the respectful alternative for anyone seeking an out of court resolution for six key reasons:
Collaborative family professionals in Edmonton and area to answer all your legal, financial, co-parenting and emotional needs
Obtain a fair separation or divorce resolution for you and your family with the help and support of collaborative family professionals, including leading divorce lawyers in Edmonton and area, family specialists, and financial professionals.
The out of court divorce solution that puts you and your partner in control
In conventional divorces, the court and divorce lawyers determine when progress occurs. In the collaborative process, you and your partner control how quickly your divorce proceeds.
Why is collaborative divorce is better for your family
Unlike the traditional, court-driven approach to divorce, the collaborative process is focused on the creation of customized agreements, developed with the help of a collaboratively-trained professionals that include family specialists, financial professionals, and, of course, family law lawyers.
Collaborative divorce professionals are trained to help you achieve better agreements
With the guidance and support of your collaborative divorce team, you and your partner reach a divorce agreement without going to court..
A more positive and supportive approach to divorce and separation
The collaborative process promotes an honest exchange of information and decisions regarding child custody, parenting agreements, splitting the marital property, and child and/or spousal support in an environment of mutual respect and cooperation.
Preserve your dignity by keeping the details of your agreement private
The financial and personal details of your divorce or separation agreement achieved with the help of collaborative divorce professionals, are not accessible to the public in court files.
So you are married or living together and one of you owns a property, and you are thinking about putting it in joint names. Tread carefully, this can be a minefield.
In my meetings with divorce and common law separation clients I observe that there are typically many divorces occurring at the same time for any one family experiencing separation.
