Protecting Your Rights During Calgary Divorce Mediation: Part 1
April 21, 2017
Divorce can be a scary prospect and though there is typically some disagreement, we strive to achieve our clients walking away with the best possible future.
One path to settlement is Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR, which is also commonly called "mediation." Like the name implies, this process is an alternative to arguing about a divorce settlement in front of a judge, and seeks to find mutually beneficial resolutions to the disputes that arise in a divorce. As long as both parties to a divorce are willing to approach the ADR process with a willingness to work towards a fair solution and honesty, this tends to be a much faster, cheaper, and easier option for most Calgary divorces.
Some people perhaps are concerned that they have more rights or are better protected if their divorce proceedings take place entirely in the Calgary Court, and that they may be in a stronger position to get what they want in this type of proceeding. We at GDE Family Law are here to ensure your legal rights are protected during ADR, or any other legal process.
Though every divorce in Calgary is unique and we can't offer specific advice in this blog, we can tell you how we will work with you to protect your rights and interests and your children’s rights and interests during divorce mediation, and why we think it may be the best choice for you and your divorce case. Read on to learn more, and feel free to contact us and schedule a consultation to discuss any specific questions that you have.
