The team at Crossroads Law is proud to announce that our founder, Marcus M. Sixta has been named one of the top 25 most influential lawyers in Canada!
This prestigious award from Canadian Lawyer acknowledges Marcus’ work to develop Coach My Case and create a new type of legal service that is improving access to justice in Canada. Way to go Marcus!
I really appreciated Marcus' approach to my file. He was always the voice of reason and I believe that his sound and timely advice led to the best possible outcome for me. I appreciated his ability to cut through the nonsense and focus on the important issues while having empathy for the whole family. It was clear that he had my family's best interest at heart.
Marcus was a strong and knowledgeable resource that kept me well informed throughout the process. Something I feel is very valuable in any lawyer is to minimize surprises and provide transparency from the very start. Marcus and his team did this for me and made me feel a valuable and respected client. I would recommend Marcus to anyone seeking legal advice especially when it comes to the divorce process. His honest and trustworthy personality helped me feel comfortable through an otherwise uncomfortable time of my life. My son and I are forever grateful for all you have done Because of your hard work, our lives are better and you have helped secure my son's future. Thank you is not enough to express my gratitude.
Marcus is an extremely knowledgeable lawyer and I was glad to have him guide me through the entire experience. He gave me honest, thoughtful feedback on how to successfully navigate the process and you can tell that he has his clients' best interest at heart. I owe him a debt of gratitude for all that he's done for me.
Marcus has a great way of distilling the important, valuable, and nascent points out of my ramblings. During mediation he was aggressive when it was needed, and he was calculating/strategic/defensive when that was needed. He is my voice of reason and he's got my back (even if that means telling me to rewrite that scathing email I typed in a fit of rage). I trust Marcus with my family law issues and I will remain his client for as long as I have to deal with my ex. Thank you, Marcus, for being my champion and my guide when I needed it the most.
LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR LEGAL BILLING
We understand that many people are concerned about legal fees. Therefore, our billing practices are responsive to the needs of our clients. That’s why we offer flat rate fees for many of our services including prenuptial/marriage agreements ($2899), divorces ($999) and separation agreements ($1999)**. It is also possible for some family law and divorce cases to be taken on under contingency agreements where we don’t get paid unless you get paid.
We also understand that many people who are going through a separation or divorce would prefer to represent themselves in court in order to cut down on costs, but they still want legal coaching to assist them in the background. This is why our family lawyers and paralegals provide unbundled family law services and legal coaching so you can get the help you need when you need it. This can be an effective way to represent yourself in family court with affordable legal assistance in the background.
**flat rates are for uncontested matters only and may be subject to increases if the file becomes contested.
We are pleased to offer family law services in Calgary and Vancouver. This allows us to seamlessly provide interprovincial services for cases that include both jurisdictions.
Notice: Various internet scams are circulating, including phishing emails and scam phone calls. The lawyers and staff at Crossroads Law will not call or email anyone outside our client network to request funds or personal information. If you receive an incoming call or email from someone suspicious claiming to be from our office, simply call us back to verify.

A question that often comes up in family law is whether payment of spousal support can end upon retirement. Moving to a fixed income must have an impact on spousal support, right?
One of the most contentious disputes that comes up in family law is around the issue of spousal support – how much am I owed or how much do I have to pay (if anything), and how does it get calculated?
If you and your ex-partner are having disagreements over the parenting arrangements for your child, or if you feel the current arrangements are simply not working, one party may end up making an application to the court to appoint a lawyer (or “counsel”) for the child so that their views are taken seriously.
