Contacting Wells Family Law from your home or office allows you the flexibility to interact seamlessly no matter where you are in Alberta or Southern B.C. We continue to offer in office meetings, with strict COVID-19 protocols to keep you and our team safe. Please know, we are here for you and your family, now and always.

Wells Family Law is founded on the understanding divorce can be overwhelming, complex and difficult to resolve. We will help you navigate through divorce mediation and, when needed, divorce litigation (divorce court), in the most timely and effective manner available. We specialize in the resolution of property division, spousal support, child support and custody. While our experience in divorce litigation helps our clients avoid court, it also ensures you will be well represented in every situation. Wells family Law understands that other areas of law need to be considered when beginning or ending a relationship and as a compliment to our family related services we are now offering estate planning (wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney, and Personal Directives).

What Clients Say About Us

Kathleen helped me get through a very tough time in my life. She took the time to thoroughly understand the rather different way I was paid compared to the average person and apply it to the divorce agreement in a fair manner for both sides. She was compassionate and understanding while at the same time she was not afraid to tell me when I should take a second look at my position on disputed issues (which was always about what was best for kids). Kathleen responded to all my questions in a timely manner. I was 100% happy with the agreement and the final outcome.

We were so fortunate to have been referred to this fine lady to help us with our Child Custody issues. Kathleen Wells has a heart of gold.

We felt like we were her only clients as she was always there for us, answering emails telephone calls and making every effort to be available when we needed her. Kathleen took our rambling thoughts and frustrations and put them into affidavits and documents in such a clean and concise manner they were hard for opposing counsel to argue against. My family and I highly recommend this bright, dedicated, and insightful lawyer. You would be lucky to have her on ‘your’ side !!

I have been with Kathleen for 8 years- she knows my situation and family very well. She has supported me through all the ups and downs of an extremely difficult divorce. If she can get me through this divorce, she can get anyone through theirs!

The other professionals that Kathleen has put me in touch with (therapist, High conflict parent support, PN8 assessment) have been amazing. I could never have made it without these 4 amazing people.
She knows how to get in there and fight for you and she knows how to give you a hug when you need it. There is no one like Kathleen!!


Of all the divorce firms I could have chosen in the city, I’m so glad I picked Wells Family Law. Kathleen not only knows the law, but she’s an amazing advocate for her clients. Not just a great lawyer, Kathleen is also personable and compassionate. She is exactly who I needed while going through my divorce. Thank you Kathleen and staff!
