WVC 48 - 5 A- 101
§48-5A-101. Legislative findings.
The Legislature finds that parties to family law actions
often have particular needs and interests that may not be addressed
through traditional litigation. The Legislature also finds that in
the area of family law there may be an alternative approach to
dispute resolution which targets settlement from the outset and
which employs cooperative negotiation and problem solving that
encourages compromise and direct communication among the parties.
