What is Arbitration? How is family arbitration different?
When you have a dispute with someone about your children and you have been unable to resolve it through discussion, it can help to ask a qualified independent person to make a decision for you instead of waiting to go to Court. This Arbitrator hearsthe evidence and the arguments on each side then make an independent decision (Determination) about what is best for your children. That decision is intended to be binding and can easily be made into an enforceable court order. Family arbitration uniquely focuses on the best interests for children involved and often requires specialist training to deal with the sensitive issues to be resolved.
