The Early Resolution Conference (ERC) assists self-represented parties in resolving divorce-related issues with a Family Law Case Manager (FLCM), who prepares paperwork and finalizes agreements. ERCs are mandatory, conducted virtually, and require the completion and filing of a Resolution Statement prior to the conference.
The Family Conference Center enables public access to courts for enforcing orders related to child support, spousal support, and parenting time. It supports Specialty Courts, including Child Support Modification, Establishment, Enforcement, Parenting Time Enforcement, and Order of Assignment Courts, by conducting conferences and documenting agreements.
Support Enforcement Court addresses child or spousal support orders, arrears, and medical expenses.
