Arbitration, helping your divorce go more smoothly
Arbitration is a useful tool to help resolve matters faster, confidentially and in a more relaxed and less formal setting than a court.
Divorce arbitration solicitors
For couples struggling to reach an agreement, arbitration is a useful and effective way to avoid time-consuming and expensive court battles.
Like a judge in court, a family arbitrator will ensure that relevant facts and evidence are collected and make a final and binding decision based on this information.
The difference is that you and your ex-partner can appoint an arbitrator of your choice, select the issues that need to be resolved, and have control over when and where the hearing takes place.
It can help couples agree on issues including child maintenance, division of assets, property issues following cohabitation, child arrangements – where they live, what time they spent with each parent and their upbringing.
At Stowe, a number of our lawyers are trained in family arbitration, and we have a nationwide network of other professionals who can support you in this area.
I would be delighted to recommend Theo’s services. He guided me through my divorce process to a swift and amicable position, acting in a professional and respectful manner throughout.

Choosing a solicitor when going through a divorce is a very difficult decision. For anybody going through this agonising journey I make but one suggestion...Helen Miller. From the moment I spoke to Helen, I felt secure that she was the right person for the job. Not only her wealth of knowledge and experience, but her kind and empathetic manner put me at ease. Don’t be fooled, Helen is strong willed and will fight your case for you but she knows how to act with the other party to get the best outcome for her clients. Her suggestion of barrister, Simon, was also fantastic and both worked tremendously hard to achieve and secure a financial future for myself and my children. Thank you to Helen and all her colleagues at Stowe, I can not thank you enough for your help and support through the most trying of times.

To say I feel relieved is an understatement. Thank you so much for all the work you have put in and getting me to the end. It is truly appreciated and I will have no reservations recommending you and Stowe to anyone.

I can't thank Jason Stanley and the Stowe team enough. Stowe handled my divorce both sensibly and cost-effectively, so when I needed help with Child Arrangements I naturally called Stowe. Jason gave sensible advice, which has given me the right outcome without incurring a huge cost. Communication was always clear and compassionate, and I was aware of all the options at each stage. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jason and the Stowe team.

Client: Mrs H
I instructed Kate in 2017 and last week she expertly supported me at a final hearing. I have been so impressed with Stowe and clearly Kate’s role. She has been the perfect choice. She has been an excellent solicitor under extremely difficult condition. I know for a fact I wouldn’t have got to the end without having Kate on my side. I have a huge amount of respect for her as a solicitor and as a person. She is a lady, impeccably presented. I know no one else could have done a better job!

A great thanks to Chris and all at Stowe family law who saw me from start to finish of my divorce, a first class, super efficient team.
Client: Mr S
I approached Stowe Family Law regarding queries about a recent breakup, and my options in the future, regarding my daughter. The partner I saw was incredibly helpful and reassuring, and guided me through the entire legal process, start-to-finish, with costings and recommendations at every stage. 12/12 perfect! I would always return to the same firm if further advice or actions are required in the future.
