Family Law Mediation & Arbitration Agreements


This page provides a link to the current arbitration agreements used by John-Paul Boyd Arbitration Chambers. Mediation and arbitration agreements are often tailored to the specific circumstances of the parties and their dispute, and your agreement to arbitrate may have differences from the agreements provided in this page.

The general agreement is the mediation and arbitration agreement used in most arbitration proceedings. It includes the option to mediate a family law dispute first, before moving into the arbitration phase.

The agreement for a decision without reasons is used in arbitration proceedings where the parties and their lawyers are prepared to submit a small number of legal issues for resolution and argue their positions in a hearing conducted by teleconference or videoconference. The family law dispute is resolved by the decision of the arbitrator at the end of the hearing. The arbitrator does not provide a written award or reasons for his or her decision.

The procedural options available in mediation and arbitration proceedings are described in more detail in the page About John-Paul Boyd Arbitration Chambers.
