… The AFCC Network:

  • AFCC members are our best and most important resource.  The AFCC membership network provides timely access to information and resources. Members come together to exchange information, share perspectives and work collaboratively on projects.  AFCC’s Web site, members and staff can quickly help identify resources and information that benefit the busy professional.
  • AFCC brings together members of multiple disciplines in the public, private and nonprofit sectors, from all over the world. As a nonprofit professional association, AFCC is unique because members do not share a common profession.  Instead, AFCC members share a strong commitment to education, innovation and collaboration in order to benefit communities, empower families and promote a healthy future for children.

A History of Innovation and Positive Change:

  • For more than 45 years, AFCC and its members have served as a catalyst for generating major reforms.  Dispute resolution processes such as child custody mediation, parenting coordination, and divorce education are just a few of the innovative ideas developed by AFCC members. AFCC developed Models Standards of Practice for Family and Divorce Mediators, Child Custody Evaluators and Parenting Coordinators.  Task forces and special projects address the ongoing challenges faced by AFCC members and the families they serve.  AFCC actively disseminates innovations and ideas to its members.  The ripple effect can be seen in courts and communities throughout the world.
