Changes are coming to the family justice system in Alberta.

Mediation and Litigation
For many people, making that decision to separate or divorce triggers fear, anxiety, and doubt.
Being informed removes the emotions to allow for clear decisions.
Our group of professionals want you to be informed of your choices, and provide you with feedback for any concerns you may have, as you make difficult decisions pertaining to family, guardianship, visitation, rights and obligations.
