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.
