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 assist people with many of the day-to-day legal issues facing families, including transitioning through a separation, planning for death or incapacity, and purchasing and selling family homes. I am very interested in helping people sort through the confusion and uncertainty around a major life change, in educating them about their legal rights and obligations and supporting them in finding a new path forward.
Over the last 15 years, I have been specifically developing skills using Collaborative Practice to help people resolve the issues that arise on separating from a spouse, including how to parent children, how to financially support children, how to allocate family property, and how to plan for the future.
I am a member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) and I am active in our local Association of Collaborative Family Professionals (Edmonton), having acted as Recording Secretary from 2006 to 2009, sitting on the Executive as a Member-at-Large from 2006 to 2017, and taking on the role of Registrar in 2019. I have also been a member of the ACFP(E) Forms and Precedents Committee since 2007.
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.
