This directory of Collaborative professionals in Edmonton and area provides the quickest and easiest way to find the qualified professionals you need to obtain a divorce or separation without going to court and needing to deal with all the associated costs and stress.
No two people will need the same support — you may need a collaboratively trained divorce lawyer and a financial planner, another couple may need a mental health therapist for counselling services and a collaborative divorce coach. Yet another couple may just need a family law lawyer who knows how to help a couple through a collaborative divorce.
You have multiple search options (All, Family Lawyers, Financial Professionals, Family Specialists). You can also search by Postal Code if you are interested in “finding a Collaborative Professional in my area”, or by name and keyword.
Karim has been practicing law for 26 years. He came to Collaborative Practice after realizing that litigation left behind too many fractured families. Karim recognizes that Collaborative Practice allows his clients to keep their integrity and self-esteem as they prepare for a new phase of their lives. He is particularly concerned for the parent child-relationship: “You never stop being a parent, and the way you can parent your children now influences the relationships they will have for the rest of their lives.”
Karim wants his clients to be able to form new relationships that are better and stronger and to successfully co-parent. He believes that Collaborative Practice gives them communication skills that will help them create stronger relationships in the future. “It’s not that you argue, but how you find solutions to disagreements that really counts.”
Karim Mawani is convinced that Collaborative Practice maximizes the chance that children will have strong relationships with both parents and their extended families even after the parents’ relationship has ended. Having those relationships provides children with the solid foundation on which they can build strong relationships for themselves. He knows that life will always have its tough times but lives by the maxim, “When the going gets tough, the tough communicate. Listen, and understand before trying to find an answer.”
