If you and your spouse need a bit more structure than mediation, arbitration may be the best solution for you. In many cases, judges recommend or order couples to settle disputes through arbitration. Arbitration gives the feeling and setting of a courtroom, without the expense of a trial or the unpredictability of relying on an unknown judge’s decision. You pick the arbitrator. You choose the issues discussed. With the guidance of a trained and skilled arbitrator, you remain in control.

At Capital Mediation & Arbitration, we’ve aided countless clients throughout New York through their toughest divorce issues. If you are interested in our arbitration services, please call our office today at 855-422-8555.

In divorce arbitration, the divorce case is presented to a neutral party called an arbitrator who - similar to a judge - has the power to decide what should happen in the case. As trained conflict resolution specialists, arbitrators are certified by the State of New York, and are well versed in the local and state laws pertaining to your case. An arbitrator has power to compel decisions over the objection of one or both parties.

The decisions may be either binding or non-binding. If binding, parties are usually bound by the decision unless you can prove the arbitrator was biased, made a gross error of law, or exceeded the arbitrator's authority. A non-binding decision may be appealed; however if the end result is the same as the first decision or more favorable to the other spouse, the spouse who appealed may be ordered to pay the other's costs.

Picking the right arbitrator is critical, so trust the experts at C.A.M.. You and your spouse select an arbitrator or choose a process for deciding if the two of you cannot come to an equal decision.

Wondering why arbitration may be the most effective route for you and your family? At C.A.M., we strongly believe in the benefits of arbitration, including:
