Creating A Positive Environment For Children

Child care arrangements are a priority for separating parents. Despite positive intentions, however, parents may disagree on the schedule and amount of contact they are each afforded with their children. Ultimately, parents must create an effective custody and parenting plan that best meets the needs of their children at the time of divorce and as children grow older and family circumstances evolve.

Commitment to effective resolution of disputes is a hallmark of our Calgary law firm, Kirk Montoute LLP. Collaborative law is one option we explore with clients who may benefit from its unique approach to reaching consensus on family law conflicts.

Responding To Client Concerns

During our years in practice, we have helped many parents negotiate child custody arrangements with their former spouses. These relationships may be amicable, strained or hostile; regardless, the children's welfare is the primary concern for everyone involved. We are advocates for the rights of parents in a way that ultimately looks out for the children.

Our experience gives us the knowledge to create family-specific solutions, even in difficult circumstances. We have helped clients who seek to limit access to a former spouse. Our firm has also helped those who want a larger role in their children's lives. The lawyers at Kirk Montoute LLP have also helped many clients who are at an impasse with their co-parent about important decisions involving the children such as education, medical treatment, religious upbringing and moving outside of the jurisdiction.



Legal Processes To Create Long-Term Solutions

Many parents feel that going to court is the only way to create an effective custody arrangement. In fact, out-of-court solutions often save parents time and money as well as reduce the emotional and psychological strain on children. At Kirk Montoute LLP, we are proponents of mediation, settlement meetings and collaborative law, which can lead to practical legal solutions that best serve families.



Resolution Of Matters Involving Children

Collaborative law is particularly effective when the care of children is the subject of a dispute. The process works strategically to focus on the needs of the children, and participants must act in good faith to come to agreement. When parents choose to resolve their issues in a non-adversarial way, divorce can be easier on children, who will be exposed to less conflict compared to litigation.
