Arbitration soon to be available for children cases
Resolution has announced that a new Family Law Children Arbitration Scheme ('the Children Scheme') has been developed which will launch later this year to take its place alongside the established financial scheme. The new scheme will offer the opportunity to resolve disputes concerning the exercise of parental responsibility and other private law issues about the welfare of children by arbitration.
The Rules for the scheme are currently being finalised and roll-out is planned for July this year. A series of training events is in place for both for existing financial arbitrators and those practitioners who have not undertaken arbitration training to date who can demonstrate substantial and current experience in children work. The first course will run at the end of February.
