What Is Family Law Arbitration?
Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution used to resolve disputes regarding custody, visitation and child support.
Rather than going to court for final resolution, the parties can opt to select an arbitrator to resolve these matters. Any decisions made by the arbitrator are just as binding as when rendered by a judge.
What Are Benefits To Resolving Issues Via Arbitration?
The arbitration process is more expedient than litigation. Arbitration is held in a private setting, not a public forum, and the parties have control over the scheduling of the resolution of their family law matter.
Also, the parties have the ability to choose a divorce arbitrator. The arbitrator, however, should possess significant family law credentials, such as certification as a divorce arbitrator by a national family law organization.
Should I Choose Musulin Law Firm, LLC?
It is important to select an arbitrator with experience. Attorney Christopher Rade Musulin, Esquire, with Musulin Law Firm, LLC, has been arbitrating family law/matrimonial issues for over 34 years.
He is certified by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers as an arbitrator to handle family law cases. He has handled court-ordered arbitrations and resolved family law/matrimonial matters for private litigants.
Can I Still Hire Mr. Musulin If I Already Hired A Family Law Attorney?
Yes. If both litigants agree to have their disputes resolved by an arbitrator instead of by a judge, they can contact Mr. Musulin as their arbitrator to set up a date for an arbitration proceeding. Usually your attorney will direct you on how to proceed with an arbitrator. Just tell your divorce or family law attorney that you would like to “arbitrate your matter.”
Mr. Musulin will use his unbiased judgment and experience to determine the resolution of the issues presented to him. His decision will be binding in the same way as a judge’s ruling in court. A good arbitrator often has decades of experience that surpass the experience of even some family law judges.
