Collaborative law -- is it the right choice for your divorce?

Although the reasons for Alberta couples to file for divorce may seem mostly similar, the dynamics of each are unique. For that reason, the special skills of lawyers such as the legal team at the law firm of Kirk Montoute LLP in Calgary, who are extensively trained in the process of collaborative law, are unrivalled when it comes to divorce. Collaborative law is an innovative manner in which to deal with a divorce without the trauma typically associated with litigated divorces.

Divorce mediation is just one possible reason for all the happy faces.
