Until today, anyone who was part of a family court hearing with the Yuma County Superior Court had to appear in person to resolve their matter. That option remains. However, people can now participate in domestic cases via ODR from anywhere, anytime. The platform went live on Monday, December 3, 2018.
Pilot Program Expands Access in Arizona
Arizona’s Administrative Office of the Courts has expanded access to justice by launching a Matterhorn Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) pilot program for domestic cases in Yuma County Superior Court.
Over the weekend, The Yuma Sun covered the launch.
“We are really excited about it, and think it is something parents are going to want to take advantage of.”
“It is going to make it more convenient and accessible for parents to meet with mediators because they won’t be having to take time off work or find child care.”Yuma Superior Courts Deputy Court Administrator Nancy Gray-Eade – Quoted in the Yuma Sun
Congratulations to the staff of the Arizona Administrative Office of the Courts, Deputy Court Administrator Nancy Gray-Eade, and the entire staff of the Yuma County Superior Court for their dedication to increase access and fairness in their community.
