This is a relatively new form of dispute resolution and involves both parties instructing an independent arbitrator to make a decision about their finances (or about an issue relating to their children) that the parties agree will be binding. This can achieve a very similar outcome to the decision of a Court but without possibly many months of stress and legal costs.
