Protecting You and Your Family

We believe that closing one chapter in your life opens the door to a new beginning, even amidst the stress. Our commitment is to make this transition as smooth and cost-effective as possible for you. Our legal expertise covers a range of family law matters, including:

Divorce

When a couple decides to end their marriage, numerous questions arise:

  • How will assets be divided?

  • Who will have primary custody of the children?

  • Is spousal support applicable?

Before initiating divorce proceedings, it's crucial to evaluate the grounds, as they influence the settlement outcome. Our Edmonton divorce lawyers can advise you on crafting a fair separation agreement and assist in enforcing or amending it post-divorce.

Child Custody

Decisions affecting children must prioritize their best interests. While court intervention may be necessary in some cases, many parents can reach agreements without litigation. Our child custody lawyers help craft personalized arrangements, minimizing the need for court involvement.

Child Support

Determining appropriate child support involves various factors, including parental income and the child's primary residence. We interpret federal Child Support Guidelines to facilitate negotiations and ensure fair outcomes.

Spousal/Partner Support

Spousal support considerations include each party's financial circumstances and duration of cohabitation. Our lawyers navigate these complexities to secure equitable support arrangements.

Property Division

Dividing shared assets post-separation requires careful assessment. Whether married or in an Adult Interdependent Relationship, we help delineate property ownership and draft customized agreements.

Prenuptial and Cohabitation Agreements

Early planning with legal counsel can mitigate future disputes. We assist couples in outlining property division and custody arrangements, fostering equitable relationships.

Adult Interdependent Relationship

Couples in long-term relationships are entitled to legal protections akin to marriage. Our team specializes in representing clients in common law and Adult Interdependent Relationship cases.

Parental Access

Children's rights to access both parents are paramount. Our lawyers advocate for amicable access arrangements, minimizing conflict during challenging times.

Family Law FAQ

Divorce and family law matters are emotionally taxing, necessitating reliable legal guidance. Here are answers to common queries:

Q: How much does it cost to file for divorce in Edmonton?

A: In Edmonton and throughout Alberta, the most basic court fees to file for divorce begin at $260, which covers the initial Statement of Claim for Divorce, as well as registration with the Central Registry of Divorce Proceedings in Ottawa. The simplest divorces—i.e., those that are uncontested and involve little or no property or other shared assets, generally no children from the marriage, and no other disputes that need to be settled—may be resolved with just those costs and some other minor fees. Should a divorce involve more complicated matters that require time in court, spousal support, a custody determination, or other attention, the fees are likely to increase substantially.

Q: How much does a divorce lawyer cost in Edmonton?

A: Divorce lawyers set their rates independently, though certain filing fees and other court costs cannot be avoided. At Chadi & Company, we understand the financial uncertainty divorce can bring and provide full transparency about our fees and your options, so you’re never surprised with unexpected costs. As tempting as it may seem to proceed without a lawyer in your divorce, expenses can add up quickly—especially when you are not comfortable navigating the legal system and might make small but costly errors. Therefore, legal representation can ultimately save you money, while freeing you of the time and stress that handling your own divorce often demands.

Q: How quickly can I get a divorce in Edmonton?

A: The quickest divorces are those that are simplest—uncontested, few assets, no children, and/or existence of a prenuptial agreement. Whenever you can avoid spending time in court or on lengthy negotiations, your divorce is likely to go more quickly. Typically, the quickest divorces in Edmonton can be completed in as little as 8-12 weeks.

Q: What are the Edmonton divorce laws?

A: Canada’s Divorce Act governs divorce proceedings throughout the country. It establishes the acceptable grounds for divorce, which include the breakdown of a marriage due to infidelity, physical abuse or mental cruelty, or following a period of intentional or legal separation. The Divorce Act also dictates how important issues like property division, child support, custody/parenting plans, and alimony are to be handled.

Q: How soon can you get married after a divorce in Edmonton?

A: After your divorce is granted by the courts, a 31 day time period must typically elapse before it officially takes effect. After that, you’ll be able to obtain a copy of your divorce certificate from Canada’s Central Registry of Divorce Proceedings. At that point, you can get remarried.

Q: How is the family home divided in an Edmonton divorce?

A: The family home is one of a number of assets that may be considered marital property—others include family businesses or farms, investments (including RRSPs), inheritances, financial gifts, personal injury settlements, and other real property. All marital property is divided according to the terms of a couple’s particular divorce settlement or judgment (or previously established separation agreement). If holding on to your house is a priority for you, let your divorce lawyer know so they can help make sure your needs are met.

Q: Can I get alimony in Edmonton?

A: Alimony, also known as spousal support, is a fairly common component of divorce settlements in Edmonton and throughout Alberta. Upon divorcing, you may qualify for alimony payments from your ex if there is a significant disparity between your incomes, earning capacity or individual financial standing, or if you’ve made sacrifices throughout the duration of your relationship that may limit your ability to gain employment (such as exiting the workforce to be a stay-at-home-parent). Additionally, you may be entitled to spousal support according to terms previously set in an existing prenuptial agreement or legal separation agreement.
