Why Arbitration is a Better Option than Court


When there is a contested family law dispute in which mediation and settlement negotiations have not resulted in an agreement, the typical next step is to go to court for a judge to review the evidence and hear both sides before making a final decision on the unresolved issues. While this is the most traditional route, it can take months and months to get a hearing which effectively draws out an already emotional and financially straining process. The good news is there is an alternative option that is quicker and more cost-effective than going to court, and that is the Hobson & Hobson Arbitration Services.

Arbitration is an alternative dispute resolution for the divorce process. Instead of going to court, your case is heard in private which means the proceedings are not subject to public record and kept confidential. For arbitration to proceed, both parties must agree on using arbitration instead of litigating in court to come to an agreement, the court can order arbitration, or a previous decree or settlement agreement included a clause for arbitration.
