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.
Marla has been an integral part of the Collaborative Divorce movement in Edmonton, being one of the founding members of the Edmonton Association and spearheading the initial training in Edmonton in 2001 by bringing in the founder of Collaborative Divorce, Stu Webb. She continues her role with the Edmonton Association on an almost daily basis.
Having been influenced early on in her legal career by the mediation training she received over 30 years ago, Marla gave up court as an option well before the advent of Collaboration as a formal process. As both a Collaborator and a Registered Family Mediator, Marla is practical, intuitive and creative. She helps people going through marriage breakdown, relationship issues and parenting problems create their own property division, parenting plan, and financial and support agreements. While considering legal rights and obligations, Marla’s focus is on creating a safe environment to empower her clients to craft decisions best suited to their own needs and interests.
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.
