This is a solution-oriented approach for clients who are determined to prevent permanent damage to relationships — even difficult relationships. Characterized by dignity and fairness, Collaborative Divorce is especially useful in divorce, child custody, estate matters, and civil disputes.
The Collaborative Divorce process is not appropriate in all cases. The separated couple must be willing to meet face to face and be dedicated to working toward a fair settlement in good faith.
If you would like to learn more about the structure and method of the process locally, please go to the Association of Collaborative Family Professionals (Edmonton) website. Or, click here to read the Association of Collaborative Family Professionals (Edmonton)’s Participation Agreement.
