6 Tips From a Leading Calgary Divorce Law Firm: Part 2
April 6, 2016
In part 1 of this article, you got our first two tips for helping your Calgary divorce go smoothly and lead to the best possible outcome: start by getting your financial documents in order, and don't make any agreements before you consult with a Calgary divorce lawyer. The first can help you get your mind focused on the practical details of your divorce, and it gives you a task where you can immediately see your progress.
The second is a good way to protect your rights and interests as the divorce process continues. Waiting to make agreements about things like asset splits and spousal support until you've consulted with an experienced Calgary divorce lawyer and are in the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) process will help put you in the best possible position to start your new life when your divorce is done.
Their important tips we'd like everyone going through a divorce in Calgary to keep in mind. And here are two more:
3. Keep an Open Mind During Alternative Dispute Resolution
It can be hard to separate emotional conflicts from the job of dividing the property, accounts, and other assets that you and your almost-ex-spouse own together. Issues of spousal support and especially child custody can be even more fraught with complications.
We can tell you from our years of experiences as Calgary divorce lawyers: clients who can approach ADR with an open mind end up having an easier time, and have the same general outcome. Being able to consider the options that come up during Alternative Dispute Resolution means you're able to take control of your divorce, rather than letting anger or stress rule the day.
4. Find a Calgary Divorce Lawyer You Can Trust
Of course, you also want to make sure that the ADR process—or your divorce proceedings in a Calgary court, should it come to that—takes place in a way that keeps your rights and interests intact, and the best way to do that is to have a trusted and experienced Calgary divorce lawyer by your side.
The right divorce lawyer will help you understand your options, and will make sure you have the information you need to make informed decisions at every stage of your divorce. An experienced Calgary divorce lawyer will handle required paperwork and ensure things are filed with the Courts in a timely fashion, as well, not only helping you make decisions but taking care of many of the day-to-day tasks involved with your divorce.
Trust your lawyer to handle the details, so you can focus on your future.
