Family Arbitration: what do you think?

Share your (anonymous) views and thoughts on family arbitration

  • Arbitration was introduced as a dispute resolution process in family law cases in 2012. Since then it has been used in 48 cases to resolve financial disputes. The IFLA scheme currently covers disputes in financial cases under a variety of statutes. In time, it may be extended to cover the resolution of private children disputes. However there can sometimes be resistance from others when arbitration is proposed.

    So we have teamed up with Mena Ruparel,an arbitrator and practising family solicitor, to try and find out more about current attitudes to this form of dispute resolution. 

    She has devised an anonymous survey (since arbitration is a confidential process) to see what legal advisers' perceptions are about the process. What do you think your clients would be willing to pay for the service and what you think might inhibit the use of arbitration as a dispute resolution process for the 21st century? Whatever your views please complete the short survey, it will only take 2 minutes.

    The results will be published for everyone to read on the Family Law Hub.
