Music DictionaryTao of Divorce Law
A legally binding non-judicial procedure held before a neutral third party,the "arbitrator," who acts as private judge. Unlike mediation, neither party can unilaterally terminate the process, and both parties are bound by the arbitrator’s decision, as if a judge acted in her official capacity. In some states, judges refer certain cases or aspects of cases for arbitration.
Music DictionaryThe 'Lectric Law Library
A method of alternative dispute resolution in which the disputing parties agree to abide by the decision of an arbitrator(s).

The submission of a dispute to an impartial third person or persons. The arbitrator or arbitrators are selected directly by the parties or are chosen in accordance with the terms of a contract in which the parties have agreed to use a court-ordered arbitrator or an arbitrator from the American Arbitration Association. If there is no contract, usually each party chooses an arbitrator and the two arbitrators select a third. When parties submit to arbitration, they agree to be bound by and comply with the arbitrators' decision. The arbitrators' decision is given after an informal proceeding where each side presents evidence and witnesses.

Some arbitration proceedings are mandatory (enforced by statute), such as many labor disputes. Other arbitration proceedings are selected in advance and written into contracts. In fact, many couples who sign cohabitation agreements or divorce agreements include a clause agreeing to go to arbitration if any dispute should arise, thereby avoiding the delay, expense, bitterness and formality of litigation. Other arbitration proceedings are chosen by the disputing parties after the conflict arises, but are also to avoid the delay, expense, bitterness and formality of courts.
