Arbitration - another alternative to Court for family law

Family Law Arbitration recognised as "magnetic factor" by High Court. – S v S

This is tremendously important as it makes clear that parties will need an extremely good reason to escape an family law arbitration award and effectively gives judicial backing to the IFLA scheme (from the President no less!). At a time when the courts are struggling under the burden of cuts and the huge numbers of litigants in person (following the removal of legal aid), this make arbitration a realistic, enforceable, faster and cheaper alternative to court for family law financial issues.
