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.
As a lawyer with over 10 years of experience in all aspects of family law, Lesley brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the collaborative process. Lesley is proficient at handling complex claims in the areas of division of matrimonial property, child support, spousal support, child custody and claims between common law couples.
As a collaborative professional, Lesley’s focus is on achieving practical, timely and cost-effective solutions for her clients. She is a creative thinker who helps her clients think outside of the box and move past roadblocks. She is able to reframe issues to diffuse conflict and achieve a resolution.
Lesley is drawn to collaborative practice after many years as a family law litigator. She sees collaborative divorce and separation as an effective alternative to the delays, frustrations, spiralling costs and loss of control that clients often face in traditional family law litigation. As the decisions made during a divorce or separation are essential to a family’s ongoing well-being, she feels it is imperative that her clients are involved and invested in the process and have ownership of the outcome, which is exactly what the collaborative process offers.
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.
