How we can help

A Tailored and Swift Resolution to Family Law Issues

For many couples, organising your assets and creating a stable situation for any children involved is a priority;

you want things resolved quickly, flexibly and ideally, out of court, but you are unable to reach an agreement. This is when Family Arbitration takes place.

What We Offer

What is Family Arbitration?

Arbitration is a process whereby a legally binding outcome called an ‘Award’.

It’s made by a specialist family Arbitrator if you have been unable to reach an agreement on a range of family law financial issues with your spouse or partner.

Setting Out Your Proposals

Your Family Arbitration Solicitors

Here at Purcell Solicitors, we have a team of Family Arbitration specialists who are on hand to help advise and support you in reaching a binding decision on financial or children issues.

We take the time to understand your personal circumstances and discuss whether Family Arbitration is the best option for you. We can support and act for you throughout the whole family law arbitration process through to an Award being made and turned into a Court Order. Alternatively, our leading lawyer, Pauline Purcell can be your Arbitrator and be appointed by you and your spouse to make decisions when you are unable to reach an agreement.

The Advantages of Family Arbitration

The thought of going to Court can be extremely daunting, not to mention time-consuming and costly for a lot of people. Arbitration, therefore, offers a more suitable solution for decisions to be made, where you are unable to agree. The benefits of arbitration include:

  • There is no requirement for Court proceedings.
  • You and your partner (or spouse) chose the Arbitrator who is right for your case and has the relevant experience.
  • It is often a faster option as there can be significant delays in the court system.
  • The hearing will be on a date and time which suits you.
  • Some cases can be dealt with “on paper” without a formal hearing very quickly and cost-effectively.
  • The Arbitrator can make decisions about discrete issues, if you have agreed on some but not all.
  • It can be a more cost-effective solution.
  • It is private and no one, other than yourself and your lawyers will know about it.
