Rebecca Cuthbertson Hulst 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 December 1, 2018, Rebecca joined the Collaborative Family Law team at Gunn Law Group. Before this, she owned and operated her own law firm: Torch Law & Mediation. At GLG, she has continued to live the Torch motto: “Lighting the pathways to resolution.”
Separation and Divorce is 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.
In early June 2019, I had the pleasure of participating in a podcast interview with Catherine Potter to discuss the concepts of Collaborative Practice.
The word finance evokes so many emotions in people that it can stop you in your tracks. Add in the word divorce and it becomes debilitating to a lot of people. The basic fear of not knowing what the end result will be can create more havoc, conflict, time loss, and ultimately, higher costs to reach a resolution.
The legal system is not designed for you, the individual. It’s designed for society as a whole.
