Maryla (Mary) AliAbout Maryla (Mary) Ali
Mary got her Juris Doctor from the University of Windsor in 2010. During Law School, Mary continued to be actively involved in the community as a Case Worker at the Community Legal Aid Office as well as a Researcher at Pro Bono Student’s Canada. She also successfully completed the Mediation Program.
After law school, Mary articled at a national law firm where she obtained experience in business, intellectual property and advocacy and was admitted to the Law Society of Upper Canada as well as Law Society of Alberta in 2011. Thereafter, she worked both as in-house counsel as well as in private practice but was drawn to family law and wills & estates because it gave her the best opportunity to do what she went to law school for – to help people every single day in a way that truly makes a difference.
Mary has litigated for clients in both the Court of Queen’s Bench and Provincial Court level in a broad range of family law issues including child support, spousal support, custody and access and division of property. Outside of the court forum, Mary also has experience as a mediator. As a member of the Conciliation and Arbitration Board (CAB), Mary is a trained mediator and works with parties who are unable to resolve issues related to family, matrimonial or small commercial disputes, to reach a mutually agreeable resolution in an equitable, efficient, confidential and cost-effective manner.
In addition to her family law practice, Mary also practices in Wills and Estates matters.

Frequently Asked Questions
MM Divorce and Family Lawyers are happy to help families throughout Metropolitan Calgary and all Greater Calgary Areas. We have represented clients in Airdrie, Brooks, Cochrane, and many other areas around Southern Alberta.
If you are going through separation or divorce, then having a legal professional can be beneficial to your case. Many issues, such as mediation, child or spousal custody, or property divisions require an experienced lawyer to help guide you through the complex legal process. We are those lawyers.
The cost of hiring a lawyer can vary depending on your case and what you need to accomplish. Everyone has different situations so their costs will be different to yours. It’s best to schedule a consultation with our lawyers, as we can provide you with an estimate.
In Alberta, there are three accepted grounds for divorce: separation (which occurs after spouses have lived apart for at least one year), adultery (when a partner cheats with someone else) and cruelty (either mental and physical harm). We can help guide you on the best course of action for your case.
In most cases, divorces take up to one year, as that’s how long partners have to be separated. Afterwards, it can take between three to six months for the divorce to be finalized.
