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 assisting individuals and families with resolving issues arising as a result of family breakdowns for over 25 years, primarily in the Edmonton area but also briefly in Long Island, New York. I have been a member of the Law Society of Alberta since 1994, a member of the New York State Bar since 2001 and a Registered Collaborative Family Lawyer since 2015.
My approach to family law is to explore all options for conflict resolution and to assist clients to find the most efficient and cost-effective means of settlement while minimizing conflict and preserving relationships to the extent possible. While litigation is sometimes necessary to the resolution of family disputes, the adversarial litigation process can be expensive and inefficient and often contributes to increased conflict to the detriment of individuals and families. My collaborative family law practice allows me to expand the range of options for resolving disputes. The collaborative family law approach encourages creative solutions which can be custom-designed to meet the unique needs and circumstances of every family affected by separation and divorce.
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.
