familyDispute resolution affects the field of family issues in many ways. Traditionally, mediation and arbitration have been used in divorce to divide marital property and in custody issues. However, dispute resolution processes have broader application in many areas of family life.

More recently, mediation has been used in same-sex disputes, parent-teen issues, senior care issues, and estate issues. Mediation provides the privacy and creativity needed in these sensitive cases. Mediation can be a process flexible enough to resolve almost any internal family issue.
