family arbitration award

English

A family arbitration award is the decision that an arbitrator makes after hearing from both partners about their family law issues.

An arbitrator has to follow certain rules. For example, they have to keep a record of any notes they made during the arbitration. If these rules are followed, an arbitrator's award is enforceable. This means that the court can make a court order based on the family arbitration award, and that both partners must follow the order.
