Guardianship

Guardianship includes helping both minors and adults, with a range of decision-making options who are unable or need help to make their own decisions.

The Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act is built on four guiding principles:

  • the adult is presumed to have capacity and able to make decisions until the contrary is determined;
  • the ability to communicate verbally is not a determination of capacity, the adult is entitled to communicate by any means that enables them to be understood;
  • focus on the autonomy of the adult with a less intrusive and less restrictive approach; and
  • decision making that focuses on the best interests of the adult and how the adult would have made the decision if capable.

Navigating this process can be extremely stressful and difficult. If you need assistance please contact us before the feeling of overwhelm sets in.

Trusteeship

Trusteeship in Alberta involves, representing adults in the financial decision-making process, protecting the assets of minors and administering the estates of deceased persons when there is no one else to act.

Like many of life’s curveballs most people have these situations thrust upon them without warning. If you’d like to schedule a time to discuss your options and understand the process, feel free to contact us at:

Foreclosure

If you are falling behind on your mortgage payments and realize that you may be faced with a foreclosure, you may want to contact an Edmonton foreclosure attorney to learn your options. A foreclosure lawyer can provide insight into the process and can tell you what you can expect during this challenging time. Additionally, we can help you steer clear of foreclosure scams and predators who prey on the financially unstable.

What is Foreclosure in Edmonton?

Foreclosure is the process where your lender (mortgage holder) gains ownership of your property, is given the legal right to sell the property and uses the proceeds to pay off the mortgage. This usually happens when you are in default on your mortgage payments. The lender can generally initiate foreclosure any time after a default on the mortgage. However, there are numerous provincial laws and regulations that govern foreclosure to protect both the home owner and the lender.

There are a few different types of foreclosures, if you’d like to have a confidential discussion regarding your situation; then call or email us today to schedule an appointment or discuss your options.
