How to Qualify for an Uncontested Divorce

We can help you with a low-cost Uncontested Divorce in Alberta if:

  • it is unlikely the Divorce will become contested;
  • you do not require or wish to seek legal advice (or have already received legal advice);
  • your file does not become technically complicated; and
  • you or your spouse meet the Alberta Divorce residency requirement, meaning either you or your spouse or both of you have lived in Alberta for 12 months immediately preceding the filing of a Statement of Claim for Divorce.

If your file does become contested, there is a lawyer onsite (but in a different company) that is available to help, if necessary.

Advantages of Hiring Us to Help You with Your Uncontested Divorce

  • Our rates are much lower than the rates charged by a lawyer.
  • We can assist both you and your spouse if you prefer (as we don’t give legal advice there is no conflict for both of you to work with us).
  • We prepare and file all of the documents (most online companies prepare forms for you, then expect you to do your own filing & serving).
  • We do not mark up our disbursements.
  • We do not charge extra for photocopying, phone calls, or mail (unless you want documents couriered).
  • We have a service guarantee.
  • We keep you updated and informed so that you know your file is being handled quickly and professionally.
  • Though we do NOT give legal advice, we may be able to assist with minor disputes and communication issues.

Why pay more for routine legal services? In addition, we have an A+ Reputation with the Better Business Bureau AND have won the Consumer Choice Awards for Business Excellence for each year from 2006 to 2019. Before hiring any paralegal company you really should check out their reviews. Our reviews can be found here: Google Reviews.
