Life transitions involving legal issues can be difficult and stressful. If you are going through a separation of divorce, we can help. We walk you through the legal process and keep you actively involved every step of the way.
Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce
There are two kinds of divorces, contested and uncontested In contested divorce, the parties can not agree on terms about getting divorced or terms of the divorce surrounding support, parenting, property division and other matters that the spouses are not able to resolve on their own. In an uncontested divorce, the spouses have reached agreement on all issues and do not need the court to divide assets or make determinations about terms of the divorce, leaving only the drafting of the agreement and filing it with the court. The uncontested divorce process goes through the system more quickly which makes less of a financial burden for both parties.
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 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 wherein a testator is able to give direction on how their estate should be managed in the case of death. Included in a Will is an appointment of an executor, who would ensure that your wishes are followed. You would also appoint beneficiaries, who receive the assets of your estate, and if you have children, you are able to appoint a guardian for your children. You can be provided 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. Notary Publics that are lawyers or judges can witness, certify and attest business documents, contracts and property agreements. All practicing lawyers are notaries public.
