Pursuing Divorce Arbitration
In divorce arbitration, a divorcing couple will utilize a neutral, court-appointed arbitrator to settle every aspect of a divorce. While the process is very similar to divorce mediation—the couple will collaborate and discuss the terms of a divorce prior to both mediation and arbitration—the core characteristic of arbitration is very different from mediation. Critically, all of an arbitrator’s decisions concerning the divorce agreement are final and legally enforceable. As such, it is essential that each partner is fully prepared to articulate their needs and demands prior to entering into divorce arbitration.
Preparing for Divorce Arbitration with an Attorney
Prior to divorce arbitration, it is important for both individuals to thoroughly prepare their statements and arguments so that during arbitration they both feel as if their interests are adequately represented. Though they will not be directly involved in arbitration, divorce attorneys can advise each partner in:
- The articulation/argument of their “side” in the divorce
- How to anticipate the needs and demands of his or her partner
- What possible outcomes may result from divorce arbitration
Our experienced divorce lawyers can help individuals feel as though their interests were fully represented in their divorce arbitration process.
