Family law is unfortunately characterized by acrimony. Divorce and the ending of a relationship is painful and the lawyers at Stewart Sharma Harsanyi, experienced family lawyers in Calgary, understand that the stresses and pressures of dealing with lawyers and court appearances can make it worse.

As your family lawyers, we will ensure that you make well-informed decisions based on your rational understanding of the law and your own personal circumstances. Our goals, as family lawyers in Calgary, are to ensure that our clients obtain appropriate legal representation to resolving the termination of their relationship; that their assets are preserved instead of frittered away in court proceedings. Common sense has to trump one-up-man ship, especially where children and assets are concerned.

Ultimately emotion and the current system in place (including lawyers that charge by the billable hour, which rewards the heavy hand and the lead foot) do not lend themselves to preserving time, assets and the relationship of the parents with their children. We seek to provide common sense solutions as family lawyers in Calgary and assist our clients in making rational, not emotional decisions that will reduce their stress and preserve relationships and assets.

If you are separating, we would suggest that you meet with one of our family lawyers for a consultation. This consultation will allow you to obtain information about the separation or divorce process.

We offer a flat-fee service on Uncontested (sometimes known as desktop divorces) which involve:

  • The drafting, filing and service of the Statement of Claim for Divorce
  • Filing the Affidavit of Service; Noting in default, Request for Divorce; Affidavit of Applicant and Divorce Judgment.

If the divorce is contested, fees will vary depending on the complexity of the issues and the amount of conflict. The more complex your matter and the more conflict there is requiring the intervention of the Court, the higher your fees.

It is imperative that you seek out an experienced family lawyer who will advise you of your rights and obligations based on your personal circumstances. The goal of the family lawyers at this firm is that you reach an appropriate settlement of all issues, including parenting, child support and (if applicable) spousal support. We are located next to the Calgary Courts Centre and our lawyers are in court on family matters every day. We anticipate that our experience in family law will be of great benefit to our clients.
