Options For Resolving Your Family Law Case

Family law disputes do not always have to be settled in court. Although the most contentious cases may end up in litigation, out-of-court alternatives are often faster, less expensive and more effective.

At Bruce & Birklein Law, our lawyers have experience in every type and level of dispute resolution. We are experienced in the courtroom and, when necessary, can represent you before a judge. But most often, we can protect your best interests by pursuing an alternative dispute resolution method that is most appropriate to your unique situation.

Family Law Agreements

Written agreements between family members can be used as a preventative measure or as a resolution tool for family law matters. Our lawyers have helped many families throughout Calgary, Alberta, draw up prenuptial, cohabitation, marriage and separation agreements before, during and at the end of a relationship.

Although such agreements can be drawn up in private, signing them without legal advice is risky. When you turn to us for help, we can thoroughly inspect the agreement before you sign. Through a careful inspection, we will ensure that it reflects the latest developments in family law legislation, is legally valid, protects your rights, and is fair and truly in your best interests.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Each family law case is different and there is no one-size-fits-all resolution method. Some methods may not be appropriate for your family. We can sit down with you, analyze your situation and determine all of your available options. We'll help you understand what's involved, how long it could take, how much it may cost, and what issues we can bring to the table. Available options include:

  • Negotiation and settlement meetings
  • Mediation
  • Arbitration
  • Litigation

Whichever method we determine to be in your best interests, we will tailor a strategic approach to pursue a successful outcome. Our mission is to resolve your dispute in the most equitable, efficient and cost-effective way possible.
