If counsel assess that a file would benefit from the certainty of a decided outcome, I can act as an Arbitrator on the file. This can be on a specific issue such as Christmas access or imputation of income, or on a threshold issue such as spousal support entitlement or dates of cohabitation. Or it can be in relation to all of the outstanding issues.
With the assistance of counsel, a process can normally be crafted which seeks the most expeditious and effective resolution. Sometimes evidence is received through oral testimony, and sometimes through affidavits, or a combination of the two. There may be time limits set for examination and cross-examination to assist in the expediting of the process.
