Many people going through a separation or divorce would prefer to represent themselves in family court in order to reduce legal costs, but they still want legal coaching to assist them in the background. This is why we provide legal coaching and unbundled family law services so you don't have to pay an expensive retainer to a lawyer to get legal help. You decide what our family lawyers and paralegals can do for you and you pay as you go. We can help you draft and edit your legal documents or give you legal advice so that you can represent yourself in your divorce or separation.
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.
It can be frustrating not knowing how much you are going to pay for a service before the work starts. That’s why we have flat rate fees available for many of our services, including divorces ($1499), separation agreements ($1999), and prenuptial agreements ($2499)**. Crossroads Law also provides flat rates for Wills, powers of attorney, adult guardianship applications and adoptions. Contingency agreements and other forms of delayed payment may also be possible for some family law cases.
PRENUPTIAL and COHABITATION AGREEMENTS
You have worked hard to accumulate your wealth, so we work hard to protect it. Prenuptial and cohabitation agreements are designed to safeguard your assets, and to resolve issues like spousal support in advance so that they are not litigated upon separation or divorce. Our Calgary family law and divorce lawyers provide cohabitation and prenuptial agreements for a flat rate of $2499*
**flat rates are for uncontested matters only and may be subject to increases if the file becomes contested
