Discover the Advantages of Arbitration for Divorce in Indiana

No one really wants to have to go to court to settle their family law disputes. Not only is this expensive and time-consuming, but many people understandably feel embarrassed to have to let an impartial judge handle their “dirty laundry,” so to speak. This is exactly where arbitration becomes beneficial.

In arbitration, both you and your spouse will agree upon one Carmel divorce arbitration attorney to, more or less, represent you both; this is actually similar to mediation, where one lawyer listens to both spouses and tries to guide them towards a solution without necessarily given direct legal advice. Unlike mediation, however, a divorce arbitration lawyer is actually given the power to make a decision on the divorce proceedings, much like a judge.

Benefits specific to arbitration include:

  • More personal: You select the arbitrator you trust with handling your case, rather than a court-appointed judge looking at your case like just another number.
  • More focused: You can decide what aspects of your divorce you want to address during the proceedings, allowing you to avoid time wasted on less important matters.
  • More convenient: You get to pick the day, time, and location of your meetings, assuming it works for your spouse as well.
  • More privacy: You choose who knows about your divorce proceedings, rather than jeopardizing your confidentiality by bringing matters to a public court.
  • More leeway: You can present evidence in any way you choose, not having to worry about being bound by courtroom regulations.
  • More savings: You may be able to expect an arbitration proceeding to be dramatically less in cost than bringing the decision to court.

Keep in mind that an arbitrator’s decision is likely to be legally binding. If you do not agree with the ultimate decision, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to reverse or challenge it. For this reason, it is all the more important for you to find and retain an Carmel divorce arbitration attorney you trust.
