Family Arbitration

3 Dr Johnson’s Buildings offers Family Arbitration in both financial and children cases, conducted in accordance with the rules of the Institute of Family Law Arbitrators.

Family arbitration is a positive alternative to formal court proceedings. It enables parties to resolve disputes more quickly, is confidential and allows the parties flexibility to choose their own arbitrator and tailor the process to their needs. 

If both parties agree to arbitration, the process is binding which creates certainty and the award (outcome) can be drawn up as a consent order to the court.

The arbitrator can deal with a wide range of issues including:

  • Divorce and civil partnership disputes under the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973
  • Claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975
  • Disputes under Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996.
  • Cases where there are serious safeguarding issues
  • Private Children law disputes involving elements such as cross border access, summary return applications, child abduction and removals from the jurisdiction
  • Children Act cases where there are serious or significant child safeguarding issues
  • Cases where a person with parental responsibility is a minor
  • Cases where a child has party status in existing proceedings relating to the same or similar issues, or where the child who is the subject of the proposed arbitration should, in the opinion of the arbitrator, be separately represented in the arbitration.
  • Cases where any party lacks capacity under the Mental Capacity Act 2005

 

The arbitrator will be one of our specialist Barristers. 3 Dr Johnson’s Buildings has the facility to hold an arbitration in Chambers, providing a neutral setting for both parties. 

Please contact our clerks for further information at clerks@3djb.co.uk.
