|This organization describes itself:
The Center for Principled Family Advocacy, located in Cleveland, Ohio, is a non-profit corporation whose attorney members understand the economic, social and emotional impact of divorce and other family conflicts. In order to minimize the negative and destructive after-effects of contested family disputes, members of the Center discuss with their clients all of the available processes by which the matter can be resolved. Where each of the parties is represented by members of the Center, the attorneys, with their clients, identify and agree upon a process. Although the available processes include litigation, most clients do not choose this process when given other choices.
|THE CENTER FOR PRINCIPLED FAMILY
ADVOCACY is committed to:
* Returning to individual clients and families control over the decision as to the process to be used in resolving family conflicts.
* Identifying all the reasonable and appropriate processes available, including principled negotiation, collaboration, mediation, facilitated negotiation, arbitration and litigation.
* Reducing the trauma experienced by families during divorce and other family conflics.
|By returning control of the choice of the process to you, the client, the membership of the Center assists in restoring dignity and reducing pain to those directly involved in family disputes, as the parties or those indirectly involved, such as the children.|
