Arbitration Perth Family Law

April 13, 2016 – at 3:32 am – by Bodekers Family Lawyers

During this difficult time, you need a simple, cost effective and rapid solution to your family law problem. Arbitration and Collaborative Law are two Alternative Dispute Resolution processes that can provide you with the help you need during this turbulent period.

Arbitration is a process where the parties choose a private arbitrator to decide how their property is to be divided, or whether spousal or de facto partner maintenance is payable. They also decide on the process involved. They have control over the process and the choice of person to decide their matter.

An Award (decision) by an approved Arbitrator is binding upon each of the parties, subject only to an appeal on a question of law.

Resolving financial disputes by arbitration offers a number of significant advantages over litigation through the court. You can:

  • Greatly reduce the financial, emotional and legal costs of litigation.
  • Make your own decisions about who decides your dispute, and how they make that decision.
  • Set your own time frame in which to settle your dispute.
  • Generally, resolve your dispute faster.

You can move forward and make a new life for yourself. Your private details are not aired in a public forum.
