National Family Court Project on Housing & Financial Justice (NFP-HFJ)
The National Family Court Project on Housing & Financial Justice (NFPHFJ) highlights the critical intersection of law and financial well-being – often exacerbated during mediation and litigation – by leveraging real estate public and industry resources (mostly free) to foster informed financial decisions through enhanced due diligence and evidence in civil litigation and mediation.
Although originally developed for divorce, enhanced real property due diligence equally applies to Conservatorships, Guardianships, and Elder Law cases.
