Early Case Management
Early Case Management (ECM) is a five-prong model used in family court that requires intensive judicial involvement very early in the case to tailor a case management plan and, in many cases, facilitate an expedited settlement.
Early Neutral Evaluation
Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE) is a voluntary, confidential, high quality, affordable, prompt, evaluative alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process focused on generating durable settlements. In social ENE (SENE), custody and parenting time issues are addressed. In financial ENE (FENE), financial and marital estate issues are addressed.
