The answer is yes … and no. Yes you need a Calgary divorce lawyer to formalize your separation agreement so that your divorce will ultimately be approved and processed by the Calgary Court of Queen’s Bench. While you need a Calgary divorce lawyer to formalize your divorce details you don’t need a lawyer to create your separation agreement. And this is the important part if you want to save money and reduce the emotional toll. Establishing the details (property division, child support, spousal support, section 7 details, a parenting agreement, a family calendar, etc.) of a separation agreement is the hard part. Divorce in Calgary, or anywhere for that matter, is an emotional roller coaster that is both unpredictable and costly. At thegooddivorce we have a proven track record and a process that will save you both money and unnecessary stress.
We start with a meeting where we can get a feel for one another. Walking through a divorce with a team of people who’s purpose is to support and guide you means that you’ll come out the other side better than most. Divorce can beat you up and leave scars … and while we don’t promise an absence of scars we do promise to minimize them. Our process, which takes approximately 120 days, is a transparent process where both parties are genuinely heard and represented. Our financial and mediation experts help ensure appropriate distribution of your current and future finances while our personal development team ensures that you are emotionally supported through and after the process. At thegooddivorce we provide a space where both parties can let their walls down and see their place in life for what it is; a sad ending … a new beginning … meant to be.

Divorce in Calgary will be as un enjoyable as it will be anywhere … but experiencing divorce with thegooddivorce will prove to be a path that gets you to a better place when everything is said and done.

Divorce in Calgary has been on the climb … to those of you who are struggling with the idea of having a conversation about who and how one person moves out or how, when and what to tell your kids … you are not alone. And let’s face it, the majority of Calgary divorce lawyers are not trained to help you with the emotional part of divorce. While they have your back in any situation, and they are prepared for the roller coaster, Calgary divorce lawyers do not typically help you move forward after this life changing event. Let thegooddivorce help you sort through all of these challenging discussions … your financial and emotional health will thank you for it.
