Family dispute resolution Guided Pathway

CLEO’s Guided Pathway to resolving family law disputes provides information on different processes to resolve conflict and agree on issues when your relationship ends. Choosing the best dispute resolution process for your situation can help reduce the emotional impact of separation or divorce on you and your children.

The pathway describes considerations or issues that often come up when people are separating or divorcing, such as safety and communication. These considerations could affect whether a certain dispute resolution process is right for you. You can decide which of these considerations and processes you want to learn more about. If you have to go to court, the pathway can help you find the right court and location.
