The Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Program in Domestic Relations cases under Indiana Code § 33-23-6 permits a county to collect a $20.00 fee from a party filing for a legal separation, paternity or dissolution case. This fee is placed in a separate fund and may be used for mediation, reconciliation, nonbinding arbitration and parental counseling in the county in which it is collected.
