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.
Rebecca Cuthbertson Hulst is the Past Chair of both the CBA Family Section (North) and the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund [LEAF], she is an active volunteer with Toastmasters and the Edmonton Community Legal Centre [ECLC], and she is a Child Support Resolution Officer with the Province. She has practiced Family Law since 2003 and Collaborative Family Law since 2010. Her focus is on the children; she is a Registered Collaborative Family Lawyer, a Child-Inclusive Mediator and an Independent Legal Counsel for Children.
On July 1, 2020, Rebecca transitioned her family and mediation practice to Bokenfohr Connolly. Before this, she was part of the Collaborative team at Gunn Law Group and for several years operated her own law firm: Torch Law & Mediation. She has continued to live the Torch motto: “Lighting the pathways to resolution.”
Separation and Divorce can be stressful and confusing – both for children and adults. Rebecca empowers her clients by helping them understand the law and how it applies to their family. Her goal is for them to feel comfortable, confident, and prepared to reach a fair and amicable settlement outside of Court.
If a matter requires Independent Legal Advice for a Separation Agreement, assistance with obtaining a Joint Divorce, or simply a basic explanation of the law as it applies to families in Alberta, Rebecca is happy to meet clients on a limited-scope basis for morning or afternoon consultations.
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.
