CHAPTER 48. DOMESTIC RELATIONS.

ARTICLE 5A. COLLABORATIVE FAMILY LAW PROCEEDINGS.

§48-5A-101. Legislative findings.

 The Legislature finds that parties to family law actions often have particular needs and interests that may not be addressed through traditional litigation. The Legislature also finds that in the area of family law there may be an alternative approach to dispute resolution which targets settlement from the outset and which employs cooperative negotiation and problem solving that encourages compromise and direct communication among the parties.
