Three main advantages of arbitration

The main advantages of arbitration during divorce are:

  • it protects your privacy - this is because arbitration is confidential, because the courts aren't involved. Everything you agree, or talk about, stays between you, your ex-partner and your solicitors.
  • keeps you in control of your divorce - arbitration is flexible and designed to work around you. You can pick your own arbitrator; if you go through the courts, you can’t pick the judge! The deadlines, timetable and issues to resolve are completely defined by you and your former partner.
  • it’s cheaper and faster than other options - arbitration gives you a lot of choice, and so it can help you save money on legal fees. It's also generally quicker than going through the court process.

Divorce arbitration FAQs

What is divorce arbitration?

Arbitration during divorce is a way of sorting out your finances and what happens after your divorce. Arbitration is a way of keeping your divorce out of court, controlling the costs and can help you reach a financial settlement amicably.

How does the divorce arbitration process work?

The first step in divorce arbitration is for both partners to choose an arbitrator. An arbitrator is a divorce solicitor who specialises in arbitration. Your solicitor will represent your interests, give you advice and negotiate with your former partner’s arbitrator. Together, you’ll talk about and settle the issues in your divorce you agree are important. Your agreement becomes a legally binding decision called an ‘award’.
