How to resolve Family Law disputes without going to trial

For family law lawyers Crystal Lawrence and Dustin Tkachuk, success in any legal case means achieving a resolution for the client in the most efficient way possible.

"Too many people are spending too much time in the legal system," says Mr. Tkachuk.   "We are all about finding the most efficient path from A to B.   That means avoiding going to court whenever possible, and even when it is necessary to go to court, we work very hard to find practical solutions."

Ten things you need to know about Wills & Estates law

1.    Holograph wills (handwritten by the Testator) are recognized in Alberta.   However, they need to be entirely written in the Testator's own handwriting.  Having the Will dated and witnessed by two people is highly recommended.   Holographic Wills should only be used in emergency situations when there is no time to see a lawyer   Holographic Wills are not recommended because they may:

  • Include wording that renders the Will invalid
  • Fail to consider tax or estate implications that lead to increased costs far in excess of what it costs to engage the help of a Wills and Estates lawyer
  • Not comply with your legally defined obligations to family members
