Seeking Long-Term Solutions for Your Family Disputes
At Kirk Montoute Dawson LLP, our extensive experience has informed our belief that the process of resolving divorce and family law disputes can be as important as the issues at stake. Few families find going to court is the most effective way to achieve resolution. Although we are respected courtroom lawyers, we often guide clients to alternative dispute resolution processes that allow families to retain control of negotiations and arrive at agreements that will serve them well for the long term.
The core issues that must be resolved upon divorce or separation include:
We Can Help
In all of these areas, we have the legal knowledge to provide effective representation, even when your family's situation is complex — for example when financial assets are substantial or when children have unique care needs. Regardless of whether spouses were legally married or not, in most cases their issues can be resolved using a separation agreement.
Following divorce or separation, spouses normally continue to co-parent. Revision of previous agreements may become necessary as families change and children grow up. We are here to help you renegotiate and to be your advocates in cases where negotiation is difficult, such as when one parent wants to relocate outside of Calgary with the children.
