Alternatives To Litigation

Litigation is not the only method for resolving family law disputes. Today we use various alternatives to disputes. The most common are mediation and arbitration.

Mediation typically involves three parties — each spouse (and his or her attorney) and a neutral third-party mediator. The mediator is trained in dispute resolution and will help to make decisions about custody, support and division of property. A written agreement is then submitted to court for approval.

Arbitration is usually court-ordered and also involves three parties. Each spouse (and his or her attorney) is joined by a neutral third party who can make binding decisions. It is important to have a skilled lawyer during arbitration because the arbitrator will make the final decisions based on the points presented.
