Women may have unique financial concerns in divorce

The divorce rate among those 50-plus has skyrocketed in recent years, leaving many with questions they had not previously considered. Divorce can lead to some major financial changes and surprises, especially for those whose spouses handled the finances during their marriage. Alberta women facing these breakups should take care to learn as much as possible about their marital finances before going through with a separation or divorce.

Disputes related to child custody in Alberta

It's a disparaging reputation no divorced parent should have. Frequent flyers refer to parents who, with alarming regularity, petition family law courts to resolve disagreements which, under other circumstances, would not be worth mentioning, much less come before a judge. In Alberta, as elsewhere, family law adjudicates substantive matters related to child custody, guardianship and parenting.

Divorce can sometimes be avoided with behaviour changes

Divorce lawyers often see couples after their relationships have fallen apart, but this also gives them some insights into what causes breakups in the first place. Alberta couples on the verge of divorce, or even those readying for marriage, may find some of their advice helpful to avoid a contentious separation down the line. While relationship tips may not always be able to save a doomed relationship, it could make the difference between a volatile breakup and a mutually respectful separation.
