Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
Also known as Mediation, ADR is a way of solving disputes with another party outside of court. There are various types that in essence operate from the intention that both parties voluntarily agree to work with a neutral person acting as a mediator to reach an agreement acceptable to everyone involved.
Mediation can be an extremely effective way of resolving family law disputes such as divorce and separation, child custody, child support and property division.
Divorce mediation is especially effective at fostering constructive communication between spouses who must cooperate and collaborate after their divorce as parents.
