Can you use ADR in a divorce?

Yes, many divorces throughout the U.S. are settled everyday by mediation. Arbitration is less common than mediation, but it is still used frequently. Divorce mediation has become very popular over the past ten years primarily due to the number of spouses who want to separate in an amicable fashion. The no-fault divorce grounds that many states have adapted have allowed spouses to open up to a friendly or civil split rather than the more conventional litigated solution.
