What is Collaborative Divorce?
I am a Collaborative Divorce Alberta Association professional that works with people through the association is helping find collaborative ways to separate and divorce.
Not all separations are “nasty” and sometimes people find that they need to go their own ways from each other. Through the collaborative divorce process there are professionals that have the same goal as you. They want to help you and your spouse reach a fair divorce settlement, based on your priorities and without the potentially huge expenses and stress associated with a settlement reached in court.
How can I help?
In the process of separation and divorce I work with families and their finances to keep family homes through spousal buyout and/or find mortgages that suit them in their new homes. We work together to find what is the best options for everyone.
It’s imperative to examine your finances to determine if you can comfortably afford to buy out your spouse. If you’ve decided to remain in your matrimonial home, but the mortgage payments, taxes, monthly bills and upkeep push you to your financial limit, the stress that this will put you under may not be worth staying put – even for the sake of keeping something constant in your children’s lives.
As a mortgage specialist who works with divorcing couples, I’ve adopted three key priorities to ensure I serve every client to the best of my ability, including:
- Operating with integrity by always ensuring my clients receive the best mortgage product and rate to meet their unique needs – both now and over the long term.
- Providing solutions, support and answers while navigating unchartered territory such as separation/divorce, which ultimately leads to financial independence.
- Keeping a positive outlook regardless of the situation at hand to help keep clients in a positive frame of mind while they complete their separation/divorce and split the matrimonial home.
