Arbitration is an adversarial process similar to court in that an Arbitrator (private judge) is appointed by agreement to decide any issues that you have been unable to. It is designed for situations in which you and your spouse/partner cannot come to an agreement but still want to attempt to resolve matters outwith the court. Its advantages are that you get to choose your own private judge and they will be an accredited specialist in family law. It is fast, efficient and private. The decision that they make is binding on you and your spouse/partner. Arbitration is normally also a more cost effective option than court. Both Cath Karlin and Lesley Gordon are trained arbitrators.
