What to do with jointly-held real estate after a breakup

Buying a home together is often an act that solidifies a relationship in a special way. You may feel that you are putting down roots or establishing a future with your partner. Legally, however, you are taking on the mutual obligation to pay a mortgage and the shared responsibility to maintain the property. Because you enter these agreements together, you must break them together, too.

Children's issues: Chosen families in the LGBTQ realm

Family means many things to many people these days and gone are the times when most all families consisted of mom, dad, kids, family dog and the station wagon.

Some children's issues may also be affected when kids begin to spend time with chosen family members -- or people who are accepting of diverse lifestyles.

Family law: Do therapists ever suggest divorce?

Many couples who are having marital difficulties try therapy to sort out their issues. There are some tools under family law in Alberta that may help them, but when they have pretty much tried everything including therapy and nothing seems to be working, do therapists ever recommend divorce to end the suffering?

Few people would blame you for wanting to end your marriage in a less adversarial fashion. Fortunately, you can.

Parenting plans a challenging part of family law

British Columbia parents may give little thought to how they manage the many tasks that come with parenting. They may even make last minute decisions for schedule changes during frantic mornings or through texts during the day. Parents who are separated, however, do not always have the luxury of being spontaneous with their plans. In fact, one of the most challenging elements of family law is devising a parenting plan that is both predictable and flexible.
