Family Arbitration

When a financial dispute cannot be resolved, you may be wondering which way to turn. Naturally, you will have an awareness of the impact the dispute may be taking on you and your family. Resolving it quickly and efficiently is in everyone’s interests.

Of course, every family is different and finding a resolution is not always easy, but as family law solicitors, we can step in and help to make the decision about your finances when your relationship has ended, taking the pressure off both partners to make the decision.

What Is The Difference Between Arbitration and Mediation?

Arbitration is a binding process where the arbitrator (a third party) hears evidence and makes a decision on behalf of both parties who are unable to reach a resolution themselves.

As with mediation, this is a voluntary process. Unlike mediation, the arbitrator decides what the outcome will be. It is usually quicker – and cheaper – than asking a court-appointed judge to decide what the settlement should be when a couple can’t agree themselves.

Whichever option may be most suitable for you and your situation, Harrogate Family Law will help you every step of the way.
