Family Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Many cases can be resolved to the satisfaction of all parties without the necessity of traditional litigation, which can be expensive, time consuming, and stressful.

Read the Family ADR Notice for choices for solving legal problems without a Court hearing.

Family Court maintains a database of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) providers that parties can use for assistance in settling a case. You may browse all entries in the database using the "List all Family ADR providers" button below.

Name and contact information, including email address, will be displayed for all providers. Additional information such as hourly rate and subject area specialties will be displayed on each provider's detail page.
