ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION: MEDIATION-ARBITRATION
At Kain & Ball, we are committed to achieving the best possible results for clients in the most cost-effective, and low conflict manner possible. Depending on the nature of the issues; mediation-arbitration may be helpful in resolving certain disputes. Our experience has demonstrated that mediation can be especially useful in solving issues relating to children.
The process of mediation-arbitration involves the parties (together with their counsel) selecting a senior family law lawyer to act as a mediator to aid the parties and their counsel in coming to a final agreement to settle their issues. In the event that the mediation process fails and the parties are unable to agree, the arbitration process begins, and the mediator then acts as arbitrator.
