Find Resolution to Your Divorce with a Local Calgary Lawyer

Dukeshire Law Office has been practising divorce law in Calgary since 1977.

To qualify for a divorce in Alberta, at least one of the divorcing parties have to have lived in the province for at least 1 year. In Alberta, separation is grounds for divorce, so you can file as soon as you are separated from your spouse. You have to wait until the one year separation is passed before you can send in the final papers to get your divorce judgment.

Divorce creates uncertainty in your life. All of a sudden, your financial situation, your relationship with your children, even your control over your property comes into question. During this time, you require a clear path to follow that leads you back to a stable life. Start down the path of stability by choosing a divorce lawyer in Northwest Calgary.

At Dukeshire Law Office, you will find a team that works with clients to find answers and resolve their divorce issues. Use a divorce lawyer in Northwest Calgary to create a plan for your divorce. We assist you and offer advice as you try to decide between an uncontested and contested divorce. Let us help you defend your interests in both types of divorce with our legal services.

Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested divorces require the former couple to agree on every major aspect of the divorce. Those aspects include:

  • Both people want a divorce

  • Spousal maintenance

  • Child support

  • Child custody

When each person agrees on these issues, a divorce can take a few months rather than drag out for over a year. Uncontested divorces cause less stress, difficulty and money.

Contested Divorce

Sometimes you won’t have a partner who will cooperate during the divorce proceedings. Sometimes you need to defend the interests that are important to you. When this occurs, you require contested divorce services.

Contested divorces require extensive work, negotiations and even hearings. As a result, the process takes longer and costs more. However, contested divorce gives you the ability to protect your important assets and your vital custodial rights.
