What Is The Difference Between Meditation And Arbitration In Family Law Cases?

Mediation and arbitration are alternative dispute resolution methods used in family law cases to resolve conflicts outside litigation.

In mediation, a neutral third party, known as a mediator, facilitates discussions between the parties involved in the dispute. Participation is voluntary, and sessions are usually informal and confidential. If the parties reach an agreement through mediation, it can be formalized into a legally binding document, such as a settlement agreement.

However, arbitration involves submitting the dispute to a neutral third party, an arbitrator, who acts as a private judge. The arbitrator reviews evidence presented by both parties, hears arguments and then makes a binding decision, known as an arbitration award.

Arbitration proceedings are more formal than mediation but faster and less expensive than litigation. Unlike court judgments, arbitration awards are final and have limited grounds for appeal, giving parties less recourse if dissatisfied with the outcome.

How Do You Know It Is Time To Hire A New Jersey Family Law Attorney?

You should hire a New Jersey family law attorney as early as possible to help protect your rights and explore all available options. Here are some common legal scenarios where it is advisable to seek the assistance of a family law attorney:

  • Divorce proceedings, including alimony and property division
  • Child custody
  • Domestic violence restraining orders
  • Child support
  • Mediation and arbitration
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Adoption and termination of parental rights
  • Paternity, support and parenting time rights for unmarried parents

For any of the above choices, consult our family law attorney to help you understand your legal rights, navigate the complexities of the legal process and achieve a favorable outcome in your family law matter.

We will vigorously advocate for you to help ensure your rights are protected and your wishes respected.

Solid Advice And Strong Representation

Our philosophy is to equip and encourage parents to resolve their differences outside of the courts. Solutions that you both agree to — even if you have to make compromises — are usually more practical and lasting than solutions imposed on your family by a judge.

However, we recognize that there are times when you need to be proactive, when a judge must decide a matter of law, or when it is simply not feasible to talk to the other party, let alone reach an agreement. In these circumstances, Rajeh A. Saadeh and his legal team will research the best strategy and aggressively assert your rights and your wishes in contested court proceedings.
