The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) reported that it amicably resolved around 61.3 percent of family disputes presented to family guidance committees last year.

This amounted to 15,667 family disputes, referring the other 5,969 cases to the competent courts.

The initiative reaffirms ADJD's commitment to fostering a culture of tolerance and promoting amicable conflict resolution to safeguard family unity and stability.

Undersecretary of ADJD, Counselor Yousef Saeed Al Abri, underscored the department's dedication to promoting alternative dispute resolution practices in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President, Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the Presidential Court, and Chairman of ADJD, aimed at enhancing family stability, cohesion, and societal harmony.

Al-Abri noted that ADJDwill keep carrying out its initiatives to promote a culture of alternative dispute resolution, come to reconciliation agreements, and settle disputes by mutual consent without reference to the competent courts.

Furthermore, their diverse awareness campaigns and initiatives have played a pivotal role in achieving high rates of amicable settlements.

For instance, the "Reconciliation is Good" campaign conducted 47 family awareness workshops last year, positively impacting approximately 4,000 individuals
