Disputed divorce cases can result in lengthy court proceedings and, potentially, further harm already damaged relationships. Alternatives to litigation can help to avoid confrontational court cases.

The Resolution Family Disputes Handbook provides an authoritative guide to offering non-court based solutions. Written by Resolution’s ADR Committee, the contributors to the book are all leading family practitioners with a wealth of experience in the field.

The handbook offers:-

    an outline of the alternative models available, including information on how they are funded and the different ways of working within a dispute resolution framework
  • coverage of the procedure involved in running a practice offering collaborative law and/or mediation
  • examination of specific, more complex issues such as cases with an international dimension, pre-nuptial agreements, and handling communications with other professionals
  • practical features within the book such as precedents, pro forma letters, and checklists.
