The Institute of Family Law Arbitrators – IFLA – has today (11 December 2012) submitted this response to the Law Commission’s consultation on on Matrimonial Property, Needs and Agreements.

It suggests that family arbitration agreements might, in defined circumstances, be treated as and equated with qualifying nuptial agreements in the Commission’s final recommendations for ‘Q-nups’.

The paper explains in some detail how the IFLA Scheme operates and will be of interest to those wishing to understand better how family arbitration works in practice.
