The Institute of Family Law Arbitrators (IFLA) have launched a new website to increase awareness about the process.

Here is the link: http://ifla.org.uk/

In summary, family arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution. Where suitable, couples enter an agreement to arbitrate and an independent and impartial arbitrator is appointed to decide on the dispute. The decision, otherwise known as an award is final and binding. The process can be much quicker and a more cost effective way of dealing with matters and certainly a lot less stressful then going to court.

Our family team has its own qualified arbitrator, Judith Speed and if you'd like further information about arbitration, please get in touch with either Judith or one of our family lawyers.
