Doylestown, PA – Attorney Maris J. Weiner of Williams Family Law, P.C. has completed her certification as a family law arbitrator with the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. The AAML certification is a highly acclaimed and intense training program focusing on the skills needed for effective arbitration.
Arbitration is an alternative to litigation. It is often confused with mediation, where two parties come to an agreement with the help of a mediator. In arbitration, the arbitrator assumes the role of a judge to decide the case, with a court then confirming the decision. Arbitration is generally considered faster, more private, and less expensive than litigation. In matters involving Family Law, an arbitrator can help settle property disagreements and spousal/child support.
The AAML certification process instills all of the best practices of arbitration: when it is best used, how it works, and the nuances of various laws affecting the decisions. It also addresses statutes, rules, ethics, and conflicts of interest.
AAML was founded in Chicago in 1962 to foster professionalism and excellence in the practice of family law. Those recognized by the AAML as fellows and arbitrators are considered leading practitioners in the field of family law across the United States.
