"In your most challenging parenting moments, take a deep breath and try to remember that the moment your child is at their most challenging is the moment your child is struggling with the most challenges.” ― L.R. Knost

Are you a math person or a feelings person? How does that relate to mediation and divorce?

𝗠𝗮𝘁𝗵 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 tend to come to the negotiation table with it all figured out on their own. They may even have charts and lots of financial records. They want to be done with the dispute and come to a settlement quickly.

𝗙𝗲𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 on the other hand usually don’t have a clear idea of what they want. They may be in shock over what is happening, or they may feel fear about what will become of them in the future. They might make a proposal based on their feelings which are sometimes beyond what the law can or does provide for.

When parties in a dispute have distinctly different styles, it’s easy to get stuck arguing over who is “right”. But the good news is that even when one party is a math person and the other party is a feelings person, settlement is almost always possible!

This information was compiled from a paper by Bill Eddy. He is a lawyer, social worker and one of the principals of the High Conflict Institute.

Whether you’re looking for help in your own situation, or a mediator looking for resources to share with your own clients, check out the High Conflict Institute at www.highconflictinstitute.com.

I’m separated. Now what?

Going through a separation or divorce can be very difficult, no matter the reason for it. It can turn your world upside down. While you’re going through this it’s important to care of yourself, both physically and mentally.

Sometimes what you think is just situational stress may make you ignore health concerns that you can and should deal with. Book a check up with your doctor and ensure you have a good bill of health.

Making your own health a priority will ensure you are as resilient as possible so you can manage the inevitable stresses related to marriage breakdown.

“There is no such thing as a "broken family." Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart.” – C. JoyBell C.

Congratulations – you’re getting married!

You’re all ready for the next step in your relationship but there’s still one thing up in the air… your prenup or cohabitation agreement.

We get it. It’s not romantic. You don’t go into a partnership like marriage thinking about failure. But having a plan in the early stages sets a foundation for clear communication and will help reduce future conflict.

That way the only thing up in the air when you say “I do” will be confetti.

Visit our website for more information or give us a call to schedule a consultation at (403) 264-9464.

Before we know it, summer will be here. Have you made plans for your kids?

If not, this is a reminder to get your summer plans in place now!

Consider where the kids will be during the summer months. How do holidays factor in? If your parenting plan doesn't already address the summertime, it's time to develop a plan for the months your child is out of school.

Getting a plan in place now will ensure your family can enjoy the fun parts of summer without the stress. Contact us to set-up a consultation.

Maybe we can fix this? If this thought has crossed your mind, it’s not too late to try.

As lawyers we have a duty to promote reconciliation when it’s appropriate. Unfortunately, by the time most people come to see us typically it is way past too late. But a lot of the couples we see coming in could have created a better relationship if they’d had help earlier on.

If you have a partner that you want to have a better relationship with, there are resources available. Check out www.gottman.com as a starting point! (Type www.gottman.com into your browser)

There are also many good marriage counsellors in Calgary. If you need a referral, please reach out, we’d be happy to help point you in the right direction.

I’m separated now what?

Easier said than done but 𝗿𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘅 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗱𝗼𝗻’𝘁 𝗽𝗮𝗻𝗶𝗰. You will get through this with less pain, grief and negative consequences if you can force yourself to refuse to make decisions when you are angry, afraid, upset or otherwise not in a good frame of mind.

Defer decisions and ask your spouse to respect your need to do so until you have the time and space (and advice) to make them.

Recognize it is hard to see the forest from the trees, but you will get there. Get advice early. Our team is here to help, give us a call to book a consultation.

Just a little humour for you this Star Wars Day. 😂

In negotiation, negotiators look beyond hard-and-fast positions to try to identify underlying interests and the basic needs of all parties involved.

A productive settlement discussion starts with your opposing positions but ends with diving beneath the surface to identify needs and establish a common foundation.
