Q&A with Michael Yang, Edmonton Family Lawyer

Why do I need a lawyer?

While it's true that many people can and choose to represent themselves, in a lot of cases it is a good idea to at least consult with a lawyer to know what your rights and responsibilities. Some of the hardest files to deal with are trying to undo mistakes that have been made already due to a lack of legal advice.

Do I need to go to court?

Not necessarily. Options before going to court include mediation, negotiation and communication between the parties. A lawyer can help to defuse some of the emotions that are often present in high-conflict situations and hopefully increase the chances of a resolution without going to court.

How long will my case take?

All cases are different. Depending on your situation and circumstances, it may be a relatively amicable case with general agreement between everyone. On the other hand, litigation can take months or even years to reach a conclusion. As your lawyer, it is part of my job to try and minimize the time and cost of litigation but it will not be at expense of protecting your rights.

What can I do to help my case?

Many of the delays I've seen are due to issues about incomplete disclosure. I cannot help you to the best of my ability if you are not able to, or will not provide, all the relevant information about your case. Ensure that all the information that you have is organized and ready to go.
