In family arbitration, a solicitor helps you and your former partner agree a final, legally binding divorce settlement.
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.
The main advantages of arbitration during divorce are:
It protects your privacy. Arbitration is confidential because the courts aren't involved. Everything you agree, or talk about, stays between you, your ex-partner and your solicitors.
You’re 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.
We offer arbitration at a Fixed-Fee rate. This helps you keep costs down and concentrate on the issues that really matter.
Tees’ family arbitration service covers divorce settlements, financial provision for children, and property and inheritance issues. The Tees team has the practical experience to guide you through any situation - we were one of the first firms to offer arbitration. You can count on us to listen to you at every step, so that you get the best possible result.
