An Accredited Arbitrator, Sarah Bevan has been a proud member of AIFLAM for over 10 years.
One of the main priorities of AIFLAM is to promote the benefits of arbitration and mediation as effective solutions for dispute resolution, amongst both practitioners and those seeking alternatives to the traditional court-based family law disputes.
Being a member of AIFLAM, Sarah and her team of Family Lawyers can continue to help individuals, couples and families through breakups, separation and custody matters without unnecessary hurt and financial complexities.
Essentially, arbitration is a form of dispute resolution, which involves an accredited arbitrator making a binding decision on financial family law cases. Although arbitration has been available for many years, it has not until now played much of a part in the family law system. While it is always the aim to reach an agreement, sometimes this is simply not possible, but the difficulty is that the delays in the Court system can contribute to further trauma for people already experiencing a difficult period in their lives.
Arbitration with a properly accredited arbitrator can provide a much quicker, and likely much more financially viable, solution.
Our mission is to obtain a fair resolution of disputes by being an impartial third party without unnecessary expense or delay.
