Are you interested in becoming one of our mental health professionals?
We train attorneys and other professionals in collaboration, mediation and other dispute resolution approaches. And we help individuals facing divorce and custody issues find the right person to help them through it.
After watching countless clients counter-productively pursue hostile approaches to divorce, a group of Northern Ohio divorce attorneys formed The Center for Principled Family Advocacy, also known as FAMAD and Sensible Divorce Alternatives. The Center trains attorneys and other professionals and advisors in alternate methods for resolving divorce, parental and other family issues.
Today, a select number of area attorneys, mental health professionals and members of the court are assisting people to move forward to the next phase in their lives. Sensible alternatives to litigation create more livable futures for couples and their children, usually at one-half to two-thirds the cost of litigation. While a combative divorce can produce high attorney fees long in to the future, the resulting destruction is rarely worth the fight for anyone involved.
Our members understand the economic, social and emotional impact of divorce and other family conflicts. To minimize the negative effects of contested family disputes, Center members discuss with clients all available processes by which the matter can be resolved.
