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.
I have been a General practitioner in Alberta since 1979, including collaborative family law, estates, corporations and real estate. If I don’t do it, I probably know someone who does. My clients are all around the province but mostly in South Edmonton, Leduc, and the Camrose-Wetaskiwin area. About 11 years ago, I “discovered” the Collaborative Divorce Process and found it so positive for both families and lawyers. The mediation training and interest-based negotiation techniques studied in gaining my Collaborative accreditation have proved helpful in all my areas of practice. The Collaborative approach teaches us to be hard on the PROBLEM, not the PEOPLE. Fast but thorough resolution of complex problems is the way to go.
While I don’t specialize in Family Law, I have found my extensive legal experience in many other areas often proves useful in preparing settlement agreements which minimize expense and ensure the parties co-operate well after the collaborative process is complete.
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.
