Family Arbitration Chester, Cheshire
Family arbitration was developed to enable couples going through family breakdown to resolve financial disputes more quickly, confidentially and in a more flexible and less formal setting than a courtroom.
It is not always possible to reach a decision with your partner in relation to financial and property issues following the breakdown of your relationship.
Rather than issue proceedings in Court you could choose to use family arbitration. You and your partner appoint an arbitrator to make decisions on your behalf, the decision made by the arbitrator will be final and binding between you.
It is a very flexible process, you can ask the arbitrator to deal with all of the financial issues or you can limit the issues that need to be resolved. The same arbitrator will deal with your matter from start to finish and you and your partner have a major input into how that matter is to be dealt with, what information is required and when and where the hearings take place.
This flexibility means that arbitration is often much quicker than the traditional court process and makes it more cost-effective.
