Proven Methods by Paramus Lawyer saves time, stress and expense

Arbitration occurs when the couple cannot agree on terms of mediation. Each spouse will present their case to an arbitrator who will render a decision. There are two types of arbitration:

  • Nonbinding – spouses can reject the decision. In family law, this will occur most often when a Parent Coordinator is requested.
  • Binding – spouses agree to abide by the decision and subject to potential appeal. Terms vary.

How does arbitration work?

The arbitrator will listen to the facts of a case and render a decision. In nonbinding arbitration, the parties can reject the decision and then move on to binding arbitration or trial. In binding arbitration, parties agree to abide by whatever the arbitrator decides and there is no appeal.

Each stage of this process requires preparation, execution and high-level decision-making, weighing costs and benefits and anticipating consequences. Kornitzer Family Law approaches arbitration like a trial: meticulously preparing your case, researching relevant law and weaving material facts into a compelling narrative asserting your cause.

Why choose Arbitration?

I strive to convert an otherwise stressful and contentious matter into a positive resolution. My experience has equipped me to handle negotiation and mediation when appropriate, affording you greater control over the outcome. But even if you and your ex-spouse are unable to initially agree on an equitable marital division, I act as fair and impartial mediators to help you both move forward after the divorce.


A trial judge would also be neutral, but you probably would not venture to represent yourself in court. We know how to approach arbitration proceedings to display your case in the best light.

When it comes to something this important, trust the experience of Kornitzer Family Law. We have the skills, experience and resources needed to provide you with compassionate legal service in Bergen County, Passaic County and throughout New Jersey.
