An Early Neutral Evaluation is a combination of a mediation and an arbitration. It can be social (custody and parenting time) or financial in nature.
A Social Early Neutral Evaluation involves two neutral professionals (one male, one female) who will hear presentations from each party as to their position. Following, they will meet and confer to deliver a recommendation that they believe a judge would make, given the same information.
A Financial Early Neutral Evaluation involves one professional who will often review the financial statements and documents of each party, and make a recommendation for property division, based on what he / she believes a judge would determine, given the same information.
