12. What if final settlement is not reached using the CFL process?
There is no guarantee that CFL will resolve every issue, although with a commitment to the process, most will be successful. It is possible that final agreement may be reached on all but one issue. All four participants may agree on some other approach to resolve that point which may include a decision by an arbitrator or in a parenting matter may involve the recommendations of a child specialist. If one or both of the parties decides that they do not want to continue with CFL, then both lawyers must resign from the case and no other member of the lawyer’s law firm can represent the client. The lawyers will assist in transferring the file to the new lawyer but will have no further involvement in the case.
