Divorce Overview

YOUR MARRIAGE IS OVER. YOUR LIFE IS NOT.

For understandable reasons, emotions tend to run high in a separation or divorce. There can be a huge sense of loss and hurt. This causes some individuals to strike out in anger, leading to hotly contested legal disputes, a protracted legal case and higher than necessary legal fees to file for divorce.

There is another way. With the help of experienced Calgary Divorce Lawyers, GDE FAMILY LAW, you can get the legal advice you need to work through a legal separation or divorce with the least amount of dispute and cost.

In even the most difficult divorce and separation cases, a little cooperation can go a long way. But it takes two to cooperate, and if the other side won't cooperate, you can count on us to vigorously protect and advance your personal interests in Court.

QUICK TIPS ABOUT HOW TO FILE FOR DIVORCE, ARRANGE AN UNCONTESTED DIVORCE OR COMPLETE A LEGAL SEPARATION:

FIGHTING IS NOT THE ONLY OPTION.

Recognize that a Court case is the last resort and a better result can often be achieved without going to Court. Only a small percentage of divorce cases actually proceed to Trial. We will do everything possible to prevent a Trial, unless absolutely necessary to do so.

LESS CONFLICT USUALLY MEANS LESS COST.

One thing is certain: achieving resolution as soon as possible is in the best interest of both parties seeking a divorce. Extending a divorce case, usually because there is a conflict between the two parties, means extra cost that could have been avoided if the parties were more cooperative. Having an experienced Family Law Lawyer on your side to ensure your rights are understood and upheld can expedite the process and, ultimately, its resolution.

EXPERIENCE MATTERS.

In divorce cases, certain patterns consistently emerge. For example, it is not uncommon for a high net-worth spouse to try to hide or intentionally undervalue financial assets. That deception could be successful if you try to represent yourself or receive inferior divorce legal advice.
