Arbitration is a way of resolving dispute – whether in relation to finances or arrangements for children. An independent arbitrator (like a judge) is appointed jointly by the parties to adjudicate on the points in dispute. The arbitrator’s decision/adjudication is called an ‘award’, which will be binding on the parties.
Once parties have agreed to enter into arbitration, the first step will be to agree an arbitrator. An arbitrator is a family lawyer (a specialist family law solicitor or barrister) who is qualified to sit as an arbitrator. The arbitrator will set the steps to be taken and the timetable. Both parties may have solicitors to advise them during the process and either a solicitor or a barrister to represent them at the arbitration (akin to a court hearing before the arbitrator).
