In some instances, it makes sense to choose an arbitrator to decide issues in your case outside of court. Arbitration allows the parties to control the scheduling of their matter, maintain a level of privacy in their matter and select a decision maker who is experienced on an important dispute in their case. Arbitration can be used to decide all aspects of a case or resolve a limited universe of issues while other issues are settled between the parties. The attorneys at Tonneman & Connors, LLC have experience representing parties in arbitration as well as serving as arbitrators.
Arbitration allows the parties to obtain an expeditious decision in their matter when it is clear that a settlement is not possible. Arbitration is controlled by a contract between the parties called the arbitration agreement. It allows for a flexible and less formal process that can be well suited in divorce and post-judgment matters. Because the parties are able to control the formality of the process, it can also be far less expensive than a litigated matter in court. Rights to appeal are often limited in the context of arbitration.
