Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) refers to a variety of processes that help parties resolve disputes without a trial. The ADR services we offer are mediation and arbitration. These processes are confidential, less formal, and less stressful than traditional court proceedings.
ADR often saves money and speeds settlement. Through ADR, interested parties play an important role in resolving their disputes. Taking an active role in how conflicts get resolved often results in creative solutions, longer-lasting outcomes, greater satisfaction, and improved relationships. Not all divorces have to go to court. A divorce can be resolved through informal negotiations between you and your spouse (usually with attorneys), by using of out-of-court ADR proceedings that tend to facilitate a voluntary settlement. The vast majority of divorces are resolved before issues must go before a judge or jury, many through the use of ADR processes.
For instance, more and more couples are using mediation to divorce issues. And the popularity of mediation has shifted the role of divorce attorneys from representing their clients in a legal battle to acting as divorce mediation lawyers to help clients achieve mediation success. In this new role attorneys can serve as a lawyer coaches, legal consultants, and legal advisers in the divorce mediation process.
Divorce mediation is about you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse deciding your divorce and what is best for the both of you - and most importantly, your children. In mediation, you and your spouse meet with a neutral third party, the mediator, and with their help, you work through the issues you need to resolve. The goal: to end your marriage as amicably and cost-effectively as possible.
Arbitration is one of the many processes used to resolve disputes between divorcing parties. Couples frequently utilize arbitration when they have reached an impasse or stalemate in their divorce negotiations and wish to resolve the issues without going to court. Divorce Arbitration is a type of divorce trial, but instead of couples resolving their dispute in a public courtroom, their case is heard in a private setting before an arbitrator. This setting is called an arbitration hearing and is scheduled at a time and place convenient to all parties, unlike a court trial, which is scheduled subject to a trial judge’s availability.

For example, if you need to modify a child support or child custody arrangement, C.A.M. can help you with that.
