Kayla’s professional mission is to lead the way forward with better solutions for Canadian families to successfully walk through conflict without the devastating and lasting effects typically experienced in the traditional legal system.

It’s time for a family-first approach, a healthier approach, to the ebbs and flows, the changes and transitions that life brings us.

KDK Collaborative Law Services In Saskatchewan

“I have regularly appeared in before Judges throughout Saskatchewan and other parts of Canada for more than 12 years. I have realized the devastating and lasting effects that the traditional system has on the family unit which is central to the psychological, emotional, social, and economic well-being of adults and children living in all types of society and in all corners of the globe. The law is only one of many interventions. I decided to launch Out of Court Divorce to help people in an innovative, interdisciplinary, and integrative way.

As a trained collaborative lawyer, mediator, and parenting coordinator, my caring and comprehensive approach endeavours to reduce the heartache, stress and pain of the legal process by early intervention and resolution through education, negotiation and alternative solutions. As a solution advocate, if needed, I help clients find the right lawyer and see myself as a facilitator for growth and positive change.

Through virtual reality, I am able to allow quick access to clients so I may devote my energy and expertise to paving pathways for better processes to resolve disputes out of court and online to better serve the residents of Saskatchewan, Ontario, and beyond.”
