Arbitration (Children)

Arbitration provides a real positive alternative to court proceedings. It is entirely confidential and allows parties to resolve their disputes relating to their children.

The process is quicker, flexible and often much more cost effective than the court process. Arbitration provides an opportunity to tailor the procedure to suit the needs of each case in terms of the venue, the date and the specific issues to be determined.

The scheme also allows the parties to choose the Arbitrator thus avoiding the uncertainty of the court process.

No5’s qualified Arbitrator Michele Friel is able to use her expertise and knowledge, spanning over 26 years in practice, to assist parties in reaching a binding decision through the arbitration process.

No5 can provide private, comfortable facilities to conduct the Arbitration. We can offer the service in Birmingham, London, Leicester and Bristol.

If preferred Michele will travel to alternative venues to conduct arbitrations if this is more convenient to the parties.

The fees and any expenses for Michele Friel will be fixed in advance and the costs will normally be shared between the parties.

For more information on children arbitration please refer to the website of the Institute of Family Law Arbitrators (IFLA).
