White Papers

  • White Paper on Family Law (2011) - This article will discuss all the modes of ADR in divorce and family law. ADR processes have particular applicability in the field of divorce and family law. As one might guess, non-litigation resolutions are ideally suited for disputes that are so thoroughly interwoven with emotions and deeply personal histories. The ability of the parties to receive professional guidance from a mediator and counsel so that they can agree on their own arrangements—based on the unique story, needs and goals of their own family—is one of several reasons why mediation and collaborative law have received such great and growing acceptance by couples and family lawyers alike.
