Kahane Law Office provides our family law clients with a number of procedural options, including ways to settle matters outside of the courts; however, we are prepared to make court applications in appropriate circumstances. We have appeared at the Provincial Court and Court of Queen’s Bench for regular chambers applications, ex parte applications, special chambers applications, judicial dispute resolutions and trials. We have also been involved in family law mediation and settlement negotiations throughout the process.
Our office can provide a number of family law services ranging from limited retainer agreements for a particular issue, document preparation, representation in court, agency assistance, mediation of self-represented disputes, and full litigation representation. We also have experience representing children in custody/parenting disputes.
To provide economic efficiency and timely results, we recommend local representation; however, we may provide Alberta-wide representation for family law and rare inter-provincial services in appropriate circumstances.
Family law is a dynamic area of the law; therefore, we are committed to ongoing legal education through legal courses and research in order to keep apprised of current legislation and case law.
Family law is often intertwined with other legal matters, such as real estate law, civil litigation, and estate matters. Please talk to your family law lawyer if any of these issues are affecting you as well.
Family law matters are generally billed on an hourly basis, in accordance with the lawyer’s level of experience. For time-based services, Kahane Law Office requires an up-front retainer which will be discussed with the lawyer based on the issues to be addressed. We may be able to offer flat rates on certain services, to be determined in discussions with the lawyer. Click here to see our Flat rate fees.
