Alberta family law: Feelings and co-parenting after divorce

Just because a couple decides to end their relationship as a couple doesn't prevent the individuals from coming together to raise their children.

When a couple with children is divorcing, it's likely their kids are taking it just as hard as the couple -- maybe even more so.

Family law: Alberta teens often overlooked when parents divorce

There are times when adults forget that teenagers aren't yet adults. Even though Alberta family law takes teens into consideration, these young people have a lot of emotions to contend with even when things are going well in their lives.
