When Experience Matters. Kay Mahoney Koustov Law.

Family Law

 

Divorce, common law separations, child custody, and support issues are stressful for everyone. You will get through this, and we are here to help.

We have the experience and skill to guide you through the process, beginning to end. Our goal is to get to a fair resolution as amicably as possible so you can get on with your life. However, if we need to fight in court, we are not shy from firmly asserting your interests in any level of court in Alberta.

Choosing the right tactics for your case is also essential – be it mediation, judicial dispute resolution, or litigation. If your case requires other professional support, we have strong working relationships with  psychologists, accountants, business and pension evaluators, and parenting
consultants.

Understanding Costs

 

Breakups are difficult enough as is, and our aim to give the best value that we can while minimizing costs for the client during this difficult period. We try to utilize all mechanisms to save costs and expenses at the outset of the file. We feel out the opposing side to see where there is room for compromise, and whether alternative dispute resolution mechanisms make sense prior to taking drastic measures in court, and thereby avoiding unnecessary bills for the client. If the case requires lengthy litigation, we are upfront about the likely costs, and workout a payment schedule to accommodate the realities of modern life and ongoing living expenses that all of us have.

Child & Spousal Support

We will work to reach a fair and reasonable solution to protect your best interests. As your representatives we will take the necessary time to properly understand your family situation and goals.

Property Division

This is one of the most technical and complicated areas of family law. We have worked in dividing home equity, pensions, investments, stock options, vacation property, shares, and corporate matters as well as negotiations involving multi-million-dollar settlements.

Separation, Cohabitation & Prenuptial Agreements

Contrary to common perceptions most family files are resolved by way of agreement, rather than
a judgement from the courts. We have extensive experience in these manners and are ready to help.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Trials are the most expensive and emotionally exhausting form of resolving family law issues. Fortunately, there are other ways to resolve issues between parties with the aid of third parties, to provide objectivity and fairness.

Parenting & Custody

Your children are the most important part of your family. This is normally the most stressful
part of a separation. If necessary, we will advocate for your rights in court. We have significant courtroom experience and an exceptional track record.
