At some point in nearly every Colorado family law case, the court will enter an order requiring the parties to attend some sort of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) session. The most commonly ordered and used type is mediation, which has been discussed in a prior blog post. There are several other types of Alternative Dispute Resolution that may be appropriate for your family law matter, such as arbitration, settlement conferences, or Early Neutral Assessment (ENA). This post is focuses on Early Neutral Assessment and the benefits and drawbacks of using such. However, before deciding what process to pursue for your case, it is always best to consult with your attorney to decide, together, what is course of action will be best for you.
