Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) that Works
When parties and parents get entangled in troubled relationships, a quailfied neutral can guide them towards middle ground. The fact is that most people who have to go to court to legally address matters almost always settle their case. The risk is that you will settle in a way that doesn't address legitimate concerns that one or both sides may have. It seems to work best if you take the time to have a professional facilitate the discussions, so that each side is heard. The neutral can then help find a solution that you can present to the court as a mutually acceptable settlement. The court always looks to see if the agreement is reasonable and where children are involved, the terms are in their best interests.
