We provide assistance and information on all aspects of family law. Our services include:
Divorce and separation are never easy — emotions run high, trust may be low, and hostility may get in the way. It can become easy to lose sight of the fact that you are both in a difficult position and that you need to get through this.
Sometimes, the court system can make a bad situation worse. Instead of seeking a resolution, you start focusing on winning — or at least not losing — at any cost.
At Calgary Family Law Associates, our team includes both registered mediators and registered collaborative family law lawyers and offer alternative dispute resolution services throughout Alberta.
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) attempts to get away from that win/lose mindset; it may also be able to save you time, money and emotional stress. The main kinds of ADR offered by our lawyers are:
The hope of ADR is that by working together, you may be able to reach solutions that work better for your unique family situation rather than a solution imposed upon you by a stranger, the judge.
For all processes, each party not only focuses on their rights and obligations, but rather on what is important to both partners. They then try to find common ground and work from there.
The certain matters head to trial, a judge will only deal with topics that you were unable to solve on your own, as opposed to every aspect of your separation.
Once a settlement has been reached, the terms become part of a separation agreement, and become legally binding. Talk to us to find out if ADR is appropriate for you.
