Attorney Providing Certified Advanced Arbitration in Divorce Cases in Llano County and San Saba County

Divorcing spouses or other parties in family law cases have a number of options for resolving their legal issues. In many cases, litigation is a last resort, since a divorce trial will often be very time-consuming and expensive. While some couples may be able to negotiate a divorce settlement or use mediation to address their outstanding issues, others may find that they are unable to reach agreements. In these cases, a couple may still be able to avoid litigation by agreeing to participate in arbitration.

At the Law Office of Russ Alan Baker, PLLC, we work to help our clients understand their options for resolving divorce-related issues, as well as matters related to child custody, child support, or other family law concerns. We provide certified advanced arbitration services, and Attorney Russ Baker can serve as an arbitrator or provide representation for spouses during the arbitration process. We will work to help you find the most effective solutions to divorce and family law disputes while ensuring that the rights of all parties will be protected at all times.

Arbitration in Divorce Cases

A divorce trial will often require extensive preparation as the parties prepare evidence, witnesses, and arguments. However, each party may only have a limited amount of time to present their case during a trial, and they may be concerned that by leaving the decisions up to a judge, neither of them will be satisfied with the final decisions. In some cases, a couple may be able to resolve issues more quickly and effectively by using arbitration.

The arbitration process is similar to a trial, and both parties will make arguments and present evidence, and they may also be able to call witnesses. A neutral arbitrator will preside over the process, and they will make decisions on how any outstanding issues will be resolved. However, the arbitration process is often much less formal than a trial in court. Rather than making decisions that are solely in favor of either party, an arbitrator will typically work to find compromises and determine how to resolve issues in a way that is as beneficial as possible for both parties.

If arbitration is non-binding, the parties will not be required to follow the arbitrator's decisions. In these cases, an arbitrator's ruling may provide an indication of how a judge would decide matters in a potential divorce trial, and the couple may take this into consideration as they negotiate and finalize their divorce settlement. However, most of the time, a couple will agree that arbitration will be binding, and in these cases, the ruling made by the arbitrator will function as a court judgment. Following the completion of arbitration, the couple will file their divorce settlement in court, and a hearing will be held where their marriage will be legally terminated.
