Find a Resolver

When you use the Bermuda Branch appointment scheme, you will find a knowledgeable resolver – an arbitrator or mediator - who will ensure the appointment is carried out in a scrupulously fair manner in accordance with established rules.

The resolver chosen will be one who the Appointments’ Committee, a neutral body, considers to have the most suitable credentials for the dispute. Suitable neutral, comfortable locations are used throughout the City of Hamilton including the Bermuda Commercial Court and beyond, extending to other areas on the island. Please note that Bermuda time is one hour ahead of New York and four hours behind London.*

Family Disputes

Bermuda Family Arbitration Procedural Rules 2019

Arbitration and mediation are both readily available options in family disputes over financial or ancillary issues. 


Arbitration can offer the following advantages: 

  • Speed - you get a decision much more quickly in arbitration than by going to court.
  • Choice of arbitrator - you choose the independent expert best suited to your situation and pocket. 
  • Choice of issues - you choose what you want the arbitrator to rule on.
  • Continuity - the same arbitrator deals with all steps in your case from start to finish.
  • Flexibility and control of procedure.
  • Potential cost savings - the ability to limit the issues, adapt the process and set a decision more quickly tends to reduce costs. 


The following is a list of Ciarb Fellows (FCIArb) with expertise in family law:
