As the Founder of Out of Court Divorce™, Kayla DeMars-Krentz, believes in family first – always. As the mother of a beautiful 4-year-old boy, she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Kayla is troubled by the everlasting and deleterious effects typically experienced in the traditional legal system. In light of this, Kayla has made it her professional mission to lead the way forward with better solutions for Canadian families. With over 18 years experience and firsthand knowledge of systems and resources available, Kayla empowers families and professionals to resolve conflict Out of Court. As a lawyer and mediator with a background in counseling and psychology, Kayla leads a team who provides Collaborative Online Dispute Resolution services. As a Solutions Advocate, she specializes in the areas of Settlement Advocacy, Victims Advocacy, Mediation, Collaborative Mediation and Parent Coordination.
She is the founder and CEO of KDK Collaborative Lawyers, a online legal practice helping those impacted by the Laws of Saskatchewan, and a Canada-wide consulting company – KDK Out of Court Inc., based in Ontario.
Kayla, along with her dynamic team of holistic professionals, guides families and professionals to make informed choices through education and early intervention. “We do Divorce Differently using 7 Simple Steps” says Kishan Jariwala, Legal Support to Kayla DeMars-Krentz.
Kayla is Past President of the Board of Directors for the Collaborative Professionals of Saskatchewan. As an expert in Collaborative Practice, Kayla has endured her own personal challenge and leverages that experience to provide compassionate advice, empathy and care to clients in need.
“The ways that we deal with families in crisis is an archaic disordered mess. Arguing about kids and dogs in a courtroom does not do families justice – Family secrets should not be disclosed in courtrooms or their hallways. It’s time for peaceful solutions in a team environment.”
The Government of Saskatchewan deemed Kayla an expert in Parent Coordination in 2019.
Kayla knows crisis is an opportunity for change through growth and positive transformation. She is multilingual and is confident working in English, French and Spanish. She has experience helping hundreds of clients from diverse economic, professional and cultural backgrounds.
Kayla has witnessed the toll prolonged proceedings can have on the psychological, emotional and physical wellbeing of lawyers and families – especially children. She is focused on delivering more positive outcomes for everyone involved by keeping family matters Out of Court.
