Ohio Divorce Law: Alternative Dispute Resolution

Many families with conflicts that require a legal resolution want to stay out of court. This can be especially important if there are children involved. For that reason, family law attorneys also use ADR to help their clients resolve disputes. The use of ADR in family law disputes (as well as other types of disputes) may also be called "collaborative law." Courts that use ADR to resolve family law disputes are also sometimes known as "conciliation courts."
