Customer Question
Good evening Pearl. Lawyer's...

Good evening Pearl.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

I am in Alberta

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No. Not sure where to start or what questions to ask. Looking for advice and direction

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

It is about my mom's will and great uncle's will. Both have been deceased for over 10 years. I would like to see their wills.

Child Support question (Alberta): My daughter turned 18 in
Child Support question (Alberta): My daughter turned 18 in June and has been accepted into university starting this fall. I let her mom know in November that I have put provisions in place to cover all of my daughter's education expenses and provide room an board for free in place of continuing the support payments as per the tables (court order) . My daughter has said that she will stay with me during the week and go to her mom's at weekends as the Uni is a few blocks away. After 7 months and a recent reminder, her mom let me know the day before the normal support payment is due (today) that she is expecting the full table amount immediately and for the whole time my daughter is in education. I will seek local legal advice ASAP, however my immediate question is: If I do not pay the normal support immediately (even though the circumstances are vastly different than they were over 10 years ago when the court order was set up, and that I tried to make an agreement with her mom starting 7 months ago) will this affect my chances of a favourable outcome if we end up in court. … read more

I have a situation where my wife and I are trying to work through a rough patch. We currently live in Alberta for the last 7 years. She's originally from Nova Scotia.

I'm hesitant to move there for the possibility of us not working things out and going our seperate ways. We currently own our home in Alberta and are interested in renting one in nova scotia to see if it works. what will happen if we go to nova scotia and we can't work things out but she wants to stay there and I want to go back to Alberta as I have no family there and my work is in alberta?
