Deflationary measures and the reduction of individual costs in family crises

Alessandra Cordiano


This paper provides an overview of the legal situation with regard to new family types that differ from legitimate and natural families (such as homosexual, foreign and reconstituted families). A highly complex picture emerges featuring a “new measure of protection”, which essentially takes shape in the means and
compositional strategies of the conflict. On one hand it defines the need for the relevant legal professionals to be able to act using deflationary and conciliatory methods in cases and family crises. On the other hand, however, it prompts a rethinking of existing practices and measures in force in the light of a different culture of settling family litigation, leading to genuinely endorsed choices and effective reduction of the emotional and individual costs borne by the subjects involved.
