Alternative Dispute Resolution/
Consensual Dispute Resolution


During family law collaboration, each party is represented by its own attorney, a neutral financial, and a neutral child specialist. The goal is to resolve any disputes and reach an agreement based on both parties' needs rather than relying on a court-ordered decision.


This form of ADR/CDR employs a neutral mediator, who is trained in conflict-resolution techniques. A mediator allows both parties to air their concerns and helps them decide on a mutually beneficial resolution.


Arbitration is a private process in which both parties agree to select a neutral arbitrator to make a decision regarding their dispute. The arbitrator(s) will listen to all arguments and submit a determination to be confirmed by a court.
