Arbitration Lawyers Helping Clients Avoid the Stress of Litigation

MediationMediation and arbitration are two ways to resolve disputes through cooperative negotiation rather than litigation. They are designed to be non-adversarial processes to help the parties positively resolve their dispute.

Mediation and arbitration can be effective in all types of family law cases, including child custody and visitation, child support, property division, alimony, and other agreements that must be reached in divorce.

At Arnel Law Firm, our Brooklyn divorce mediation lawyers can represent you during these processes to ensure that your voice is heard and that your rights and interests are protected. Based in Brooklyn, we also represent clients in Manhattan, Queens, and throughout New York City.

How Mediation Works in Brooklyn

Mediation involves a third party—often a lawyer—who is specially trained in alternative dispute resolution (ADR). The neutral mediator attempts to help you and the other party resolve issues by talking them out and expressing your opinions in a constructive way.

Unlike a court trial that pits one spouse against another, mediation seeks to resolve issues through open communication and mutual agreement. A typical mediation session lasts anywhere from an hour to a full day.

Numerous studies have shown that couples filing for a divorce who choose the path of negotiation or mediation are more mutually satisfied with the terms of their divorce than those who receive court orders issued by a judge.

What Is Arbitration?

Arbitration is similar to mediation in that it uses an impartial third party and ADR techniques to avoid litigation. In arbitration, both parties present the issues they want resolved to an arbitrator, who is usually a current or former attorney or judge with extensive experience in family law. The parties have the right to select the arbitrator and the location of the arbitration.

Skilled in Mediation & Arbitration

At Arnel Law Firm, we understand how stressful divorce can be for the whole family. Many divorcing couples want to complete their divorce as quickly as possible. We know from experience that mediation and arbitration can be an effective means to that end.

We attend mediation and arbitration sessions with our clients to advise them on any proposed agreements so they can make informed decisions. Our highest priority is to always protect our clients' best interests.

At the conclusion of most sessions, an agreement addressing all the decisions the couple has reached is signed.

Choosing mediation or arbitration instead of litigation has numerous benefits, including:
  • Reducing the stress of divorce
  • Reducing costs compared to litigation
  • Providing more control over the structure of each party’s post-divorce life
  • Providing confidentiality of your divorce agreement
  • Minimizing the impact of divorce on children
  • Helping preserve family relationships
