Similar to mediation, arbitration has become yet another alternative approach to successful family law resolutions. The parties involved in the arbitration control the steps and process of their disputes with a family law arbitrator that both parties agree upon.
Due to more confidential and privacy, arbitration is becoming a more popular way to dissolve a marriage rather than having a trial in a courtroom. Anything disclosed or discovered in an arbitration is handled discretely and not made public record, as it is not filed in a public reported court.
Arbitration is more cost effective, less invasive and can provide a more respectful method than the customary courtroom trial.
