Understanding Divorce Arbitration
Divorce arbitration is one alternative to going through the traditional divorce process. Arbitration involves an arbiter, who is an objective third-party reviewer of a divorce’s proceedings. The arbiter will listen to both sides of the divorce and make a legal ruling on the case that is legally binding for all parties involved. This allows a couple to avoid the courtroom, which can make things much less expensive and easier in general. As we at the Law Office of Andrew A. Bestafka, Esq., know, many people in Monmouth County have chosen to take advantage of the divorce arbitration process to expedite the divorce process.
Though divorce arbitration does not require the help of a lawyer, many people choose to enlist the support of a legal representative. This is largely due to the many advantages that a lawyer can provide throughout this legal process.
What a Divorce Arbitration Attorney Does
Because arbitration happens outside of the courtroom, an arbitration attorney’s role may be somewhat different than what you’d expect if you went through court. For instance, an arbitration attorney can:
- Implement a strategy for presenting your side to the case
- Represent any concerns you have regarding your settlement
- Present any settlement options not already considered
- Legally and professionally rebut claims that your spouse makes against you
- Alleviate some of the stress of divorce
These functions of an arbitration attorney have led many to turn to arbitration as a possible solution for their difficulties with the divorce process.
