Life transitions involving legal issues can be difficult and stressful. If you’re going through a separation or divorce, we can help. We will walk you through the legal process and keep you involved every step of the way.
Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce
There are two kinds of divorces: contested and uncontested. In a contested divorce, the parties cannot agree on the terms of the divorce. The terms of a divorce may include: child support, spousal support, parenting arrangements, and property division. In an uncontested divorce, the spouses have reached an agreement on all issues and do not need the court to make determinations about the terms of the divorce. As such, the only thing left for a lawyer to do is draft the agreement and file yje divorce with the Courts. The uncontested divorce process moves through the system faster and creates less of a financial burden for both parties, as the bulk of legal costs in a contested divorce come from parties being unable to reach an agreement on the terms.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) can be an efficient and cost-effective course of action for divorcing spouses who are willing to work together. While these proceedings can still be prone to conflict, they give each spouse the opportunity to have an equal input into the decisions that need to be made and to have an active role in the outcome.
Real estate can be one of the most important assets you will own, so it is important to have the proper legal guidance when you are ready to buy or sell. We are here to help you draft the contract that reflects your specific real estate deal. We will guide you through the process and ensure you get what you need out of the transaction quickly and securely.
Wills & Estates
A will is a legal document that allows you to give direction on how their estate should be managed in the event of death. Your will includes the appointment of an executor, who ensures that your wishes are followed. You will also name beneficiaries who receive the assets of your estate; and, if you have children, you are able to appoint a guardian for your children in your will. A will provides you with certainty and peace of mind that your loved ones will be properly taken care of in the event of your death.
In Alberta, a Notary Public has all the powers of a Commissioner of Oaths and can endorse documents to be used outside the Province.
