Some couples just know when it’s time to close the chapter on their marriage and start a new one. They are both in agreement that litigation is unnecessary and a quick cost effective resolution is the best option.
Arbitration is a unique alternative dispute resolution because both spouses agree to abide by the arbitrator’s decisions regarding issues they can’t settle. Each spouse has an attorney who will represent them throughout the hearings and the arbitrator rules on each matter. Arbitration is generally a voluntary process and the spouses agree ahead of time whether the arbitrator’s decision will be binding or nonbinding.
