CohabitationFamily arbitration gives couples who are experiencing a break up the chance to resolve disputes by working with an arbitrator.

There are some situations where arbitration might not be suitable, for example if you need to get evidence from third parties or there is a risk that your partner might try to hide assets, but arbitration aims to offer an alternative to going to court for some family cases.

You and your former partner jointly appoint an arbitrator, who acts like a privately instructed judge. The arbitrator makes a decision that will be final and binding on you. The same arbitrator deals with all stages of the case from start to finish. They also make decisions about how the case progresses. This may include, for example, choosing the venue, whether to meet face to face, by telephone or through writing only, or whether to use the arbitrator for the whole process or just parts of it where you are stuck.

The aim is to put in place a process which may be able to offer a quicker, more flexible and less formal approach than a courtroom. The flexibility can make arbitration more cost-effective than court.

You can find out more about arbitration on The Institute of Family Law Arbitrator’s website.
