Many lawyers taking family law files to arbitration assume that hearings will be conducted as private simulacra of trials. While they certainly can, and there are files that benefit from this approach, it is possible, and often preferable that the processes and procedures used in arbitration hearings are no more complex, costly, or time-consuming than what is demanded by the needs of the parties, the complexity of the issues, and the value of the matters in dispute.
Discuss the minimum duties of arbitrators under the Arbitration Act and the options available for the creative design of arbitration hearings to create streamlined processes that are proportionate to the parties’ circumstances.
- Minimum duties and responsibilities under the Arbitration Act
- Fundamental justice and the resolution of family law disputes
- The principle of proportionality and the development of hearing processes
- Options for hearing procedures
