Our Mission Statement

To facilitate inter-professional communication and collaboration in order to reveal, understand, and educate about the dynamics of the relationships that comprise the legal process by which families are reorganized in divorce, crisis and conflict, such that divorce becomes an opportunity for personal growth, closure, and healing, and maximizes the best interests of children.

The Association of Family and Conciliation Courts is both an international and interdisciplinary professional association dedicated to the constructive resolution of family disputes. AFCC membership is open to all professionals who work with families in conflict. This includes judges, lawyers, mediators, psychologists, social workers, other mental health professionals, child custody evaluators, parent educators, court administrators, researchers, and academics.

NJ‑AFCC has been approved by the AFCC Executive Committee as a State Chapter of AFCC, and received its charter as a State Chapter on March 18, 2002.
