This time the QB Family Law Consulting Committee is seeking feedback regarding ADR processes, in particular those which the courthouse oversees (although you're welcome to provide comments about other processes). They're looking for both criticism and praise of what does work well, and any suggestions about how to improve the process. I will pass along your feedback, or you're welcome to provide feedback directly to Teri Burant at or 780-970-6291. Please provide feedback by December 8, 2021.

I had thought that Resolution Counsel was only available if one, or both, of the parties were unrepresented. Although, I believe that there may have been a couple of cases where it was ordered with both parties being represented. Resolution counsel should be available to all that meet the financial guidelines. It is a great program, especially if you have an unrepresented party on the other side.
