Can you benefit from arbitration in a divorce?
There are times when two spouses in a
divorce are able to come to an amicable agreement regarding the terms of divorce
and part ways without contention. Even with the best intentions, a divorcing
couple may not agree on certain terms, such as property or debt division,
support and custody. In these cases, it's possible that arbitration
is a solution to resolve these matters and avoid a trial.
Charles E. Willmott, P.A., I take great care with each and every client who is facing divorce and
focus my efforts on seeking the best possible outcome. If arbitration
is a good option, I assist my clients in choosing an Arbitrator who will
facilitate the divorce process.
Divorce Arbitration as an Alternative to Trial
Arbitration is a tool that can be used to help two people finalize divorce
terms when they hit an impasse. It allows the couple to find closure without
the necessity of facing an expensive trial and the stress involved in
litigation. It is a private proceeding involving the spouses, their attorneys,
and the chosen Arbitrator.
Another advantage to arbitration is that the spouses are able to choose
the arbitrator, as well as when and where it will take place. They can
also control how the arbitration will be conducted and the length of time
the arbitrator has to submit a decision. After reviewing all the relevant
information regarding the dispute(s), the arbitrator will make his decision
known, called an award. In most cases, this decision is final and is not
subject to appeal.
I have successfully helped many clients achieve their goals when divorce
proceedings reach a stalemate. Arbitration is an excellent option and
both parties are involved. I give all my clients the respect and help
they deserve in divorce, arbitration and other types of alternative dispute
