What Is Arbitration?

In arbitration, attorneys represent the divorcing parties before a specially qualified lawyer rather than a judge. The decisions the arbitrator makes are binding. You can arbitrate every aspect of your family law matter, or you may arbitrate only one aspect of your case, such as child support, child custody or business valuation. You may also choose to arbitrate your entire divorce.

What Is Mediation?

Many of our attorneys are trained mediators. We can serve as an impartial go-between to help you come to a resolution in your family law matter. Mediators do not make binding decisions but rather work with the parties to help the parties come to an agreement. Mediation often leaves clients better able to communicate and cooperate with the other parent regarding shared parenting matters.

What Is Collaborative Divorce?

People who are able to get along as they are divorcing may be best suited to collaborative divorce. All parties including the lawyers agree upfront that they are not going to trial. All four parties agree to cooperate and negotiate in good faith to resolve issues. If the parties are unable to come to a resolution through this process, they must both retain the services of different attorneys.

Arbitration and Mediation Offer the Following Benefits:

  • Cost-Effectiveness
  • Flexibility
  • Discretion
  • Speed

Speed, Flexibility and Cost Efficiency

We have the training and experience to do arbitration and mediation in lieu of a trial. With both arbitration and mediation, you have more control of the process. Both offer speed, flexibility and more cost-effective options. Meetings can be scheduled at times and locations that are convenient to you.

Arbitrations Offer Discretion ▪ Avoid Court

Arbitration and mediation are discreet and offer privacy when you need it the most. Issues under discussion such as paternity or parenting time can remain confidential, not part of any public court record. You also avoid the cumbersome court process entirely.
