Atlanta Arbitration Attorney
Effective Advocacy in Alternative Dispute Resolution Methods
Arbitration is a method of alternate dispute resolution (ADR) that is commonly used in family law and divorce disputes when the parties do not wish to wait for the matter to work its way slowly through the court system. At Warner Bates, we understand that every family is unique. Our firm emphasizes solutions tailored to your unique situation and preferences. Our professionalism, care, and knowledge of Georgia family law has helped us earn our reputation as some of the most trusted and experienced arbitrators in Atlanta.
Why Do So Many Divorcing Couples Choose Arbitration?
The classic picture of divorce is one of two contentious parties facing off in court over a variety of disputed issues such as child custody, child support, property division, and alimony. Resolving divorce in court can be a lengthy process-not to mention an expensive and contentious one. Arbitration offers a way to "hire your judge" to complete a hearing or trial on a date certain, with minimal downtime or waiting time for a decision.
Arbitration effectively saves you:
- Time - By agreeing to an "end date" and avoiding the clogged family court system, you'll almost certainly see a much faster resolution to your divorce.
- Money - The old adage "time is money" is certainly true when it comes to divorce. A dragged-out court case can result in expensive legal fees, court fees, and missed work. Choosing arbitration could allow you to save money by expediting the process.
- Stress - There is no denying that divorce is often a highly stressful experience. Arbitration allows you to maintain control and paves the way for a less divisive and contentious process-potentially fostering improved relationships between the parties.
