       What is Divorce?                by Sesame Street   

The Massachusetts Chapter of AFCC, founded in 1993, is an interdisciplinary association of family law judges, attorneys, mediators, guardian ad litem, court administrators and mental health professionals. 

It is dedicated to providing an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of ideas and the development of procedures to assist families in conflict; to encouraging the improvement of courts and court procedures emphasizing collaborative methods of dispute resolution; and working to develop and improve the provision of services that aid in resolution of family disputes.

It is also dedicated to protecting the interests of children in relation to all aspects of family law, child protection proceedings and all other legal proceedings affecting children; and conducting cutting edge educational programs in furtherance of the foregoing purposes.
