Collaboratively trained Family Professionals and Financial Professionals will also be brought in to help resolve any issues and provide support. The Collaborative process preserves your privacy and your dignity while giving you the best possible chance at resolving your disputes respectfully.

A tailor-made solution
The collaborative process enables the creation of a customized agreement that focuses on your special interests and your family’s well-being.
Participants = decision makers
With the guidance of your collaborative divorce specialist, you and your partner reach your own agreements which are often more creative than what a court could order.
An honest exchange of information and decisions are made in an environment of mutual respect and cooperation.
Privacy = dignity
The financial and personal details of your family breakdown are not accessible to the public in court files.
Divorce or separation can be an emotional and challenging time, and one of the most complicated aspects is dividing assets. Registered investments, such as pensions, RRSPs, and LIRAs, are often a significant part of a couple’s financial picture, and understanding how to divide them can be confusing.
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.
