For decades, Butterworths Family Law Service (BFLS) has provided a comprehensive coverage of all aspects of family law. It was particularly appropriate, therefore, that it was the first and remains the only legal textbook to recognise fully how family law matters are now resolved in practice. Alongside the court process, an entire binder of the work is dedicated to alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
Over 5 years ago, arbitration was added to family ADR. Since then, hundreds of arbitrations have taken place and there are now over 250 arbitrators, who are all experienced family practitioners. It is now possible to deal with not only financial but also children matters.
