A lawyer


A former Chairman of the NBA Asaba branch expressed during one of the NBA monthly meetings of how he had a matter that has been lingering for a long time which was settled by the DSMDC within a short period. He expressed how he was greatly inspired by the ADR process.

Family Issue


A certain woman said that the Multi-Door Courthouse helped her reconcile with her Husband. “I came to the Multi-Door Courthouse to help me with divorce proceedings because I could no longer leave with my Husband without us fighting over everything from upkeep to the kid’s school fees. Upon my meeting with officers of the DSMDC, I was advised by the DSMDC that they cannot dissolve my marriage, since it is a Marriage under the Act, that it is the Courts that can dissolve it. However, the DSMDC can try and reconcile us through mediation. After about two mediation sessions I did not see the need for a divorce as we agreed on how much he will provide monthly as upkeep for my family, school fees for my kids”. The Settlement Agreement was signed by both parties and it was forwarded to an ADR Judge for endorsement.



:“My community approached the DSMDC to assist us in the settlement of a lingering dispute that has claimed lives and properties. The DSMDC invited all Parties, including officials of the State Government and the Oil Company occupying the land in dispute. It was a happy scene when the DSMDC helped us to come to an agreement that was beneficial to all”.
