It is possible to ask an arbitrator, rather than a judge, to make a final decision between two people about arrangements following divorce.  The arbitrator’s decision is then approved by the court, making it fully binding.

Simon Bethel and Jeremy Ford were two of the first qualified children’s arbitrators in the country.  Simon or Jeremy can, by the consent of both adults involved, provide a binding solution to the question of what children’s arrangements should be when parents do not agree.

CFLP can also arrange arbitration in financial or children cases for clients who want a quicker, more cost-effective and discreet decision than can be achieved through the courts.
