Alternative Dispute Resolution
Not all lawsuits proceed to a trial before a judge or a jury. There is often a window of opportunity, either before or after a lawsuit is filed, where the parties may be able to negotiate a reasonable settlement or resolution that avoids the financial costs, risks, uncertainty, and emotional turmoil of proceeding with a lawsuit. If that opportunity presents itself, the attorneys for the respective parties may suggest one of the various forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), in which a neutral, independent third party is utilized to facilitate negotiations and help move the parties to a mutually agreed-upon settlement. While there are many types of ADR, the goal is always for the parties to negotiate freely to come to a resolution, since doing so provides the best opportunity to promote settlement and support a family's need to move beyond the conflict to find healing.
