The Association of Family and Conciliation Courts is an interdisciplinary and international association dedicated to family conflict resolution. Members of the AFCC include judges, lawyer, mediators, psychologists, academics, psychiatrists and social workers, among others.
The Massachusetts Chapter was created in 1993. Its purpose is to provide an opportunity to open up a dialogue and exchange ideas on ways to improve the procedures in place to help families in conflict. It seeks to improve court procedures by introducing more collaborative system of dispute resolution. One of the main goals of the AFCC and the Massachusetts chapter is to protect the interests of children in all facets of family law.
Since 2008, Mr. Fields has regularly written a well-regarded column for the Family Law Quarterly about Massachusetts family law and its impact on divorce mediation. He has spoken at various conferences and panels on the topic and his expertise has also been consulted for a major television network show dealing with matters of family law.
