The American Conference of Chief Justices (CCJ) and the Conference of State Court Administrators (COSCA) have collaborated in producing “The Family Justice Initiative”. The report is unique in that it uses data collected from 11 American states and over 147,000 cases in an attempt to use evidence to test anecdotal perceptions and conventional wisdom about family litigation.
