HOW CAN WE HELP?
Our company will help you prepare, and then file on your behalf and with your permission, all of the documents needed to obtain a divorce. Without our service, you will have to take the time and effort to learn the complete process of obtaining a Alberta divorce in order to deal with the Court on one matter. This would be the same as going to school and learning to be a mechanic to fix your engine. You may be able to do it on your own, but is it worth the time, effort and frustration to learn the process. This is the same problem with buying books to complete the process. They have to cover every possible scenario so they tend to be much more complicated than you need for an uncontested divorce.
WHY CHOOSE US?
We bring almost 15 years of experience in this business to the table. We have seen almost every possible combination of situations that may need to be addressed and we know what the Alberta divorce Court requires to finish the divorce. Despite what people may have told you, every divorce is different, every Court clerk in different, and every Judge is different. Unless you have the knowledge and experience to know what is required by each Court, then you will waste time, effort, and frustration that goes far beyond the money you will pay us to complete the divorce on your behalf.
WHAT CAN’T WE DO?
We are not lawyers, nor are we members of the Law Society of Alberta. We can’t give you legal advice nor can we advise you of the outcome you can expect. We can, however, follow your instructions and complete documents based on the information you provide. We are also able to conduct mediation sessions to solve any outstanding issues with your ex-spouse that are needed to obtain agreement between the parties. If you need legal advice at any time during the Alberta divorce process, we will advise you to obtain legal advice and try to arrange for you to meet with a lawyer that will help you. If after meeting with us, you decide that you need to talk to a Alberta Divorce Lawyer (or for our American friends a Alberta Divorce Attorney) we will try to refer you to one of many Alberta Divorce Lawyers that we work with on a regular basis.
This is your chance to ask us any questions you may have. We will try and guide you through the process. We will tell what steps are needed and tell you what you need to supply to our office so we can help you. Together, we can help you get a Alberta divorce, without breaking the bank!
