  1. Thank you for reaching out. I appreciate the opportunity to provide you with a legal opinion on your situation. Here are my responses to your queries:

    1. To initiate arbitration or mediation in the District Court of Panchkula, you and your husband must first agree on this method of dispute resolution. You will then need to file a joint application or petition seeking the Court’s permission for arbitration or mediation. The court typically encourages such alternative dispute resolution methods as they are less adversarial and can help maintain amicable relations.

    2. The interest of the child is paramount in any family dispute. During the arbitration and mediation process, the court ensures that the children’s interests are protected by considering their welfare at every stage. This includes decisions regarding custody, visitation rights, maintenance, education, and other aspects that directly affect the child’s well-being.

    3. In Panchkula District Court, the court generally appoints the mediator. However, if both parties mutually agree upon a mediator, the court usually respects their choice, provided the selected mediator is qualified and impartial.

    4. If mediation fails to resolve your disputes, you can indeed proceed to arbitration. The transition from mediation to arbitration involves filing a fresh application in the court seeking to initiate the arbitration process.

    5. Legal costs for arbitration and mediation vary based on several factors, including the complexity of the case, the duration of the proceedings, and the fees of the arbitrator or mediator. The court does have provisions to waive or reduce these costs in cases of financial hardship, but it is at the discretion of the court.

    6. If either party is dissatisfied with the outcome of arbitration or mediation, you can appeal to a higher court within a specified time period. However, please note that appeals are generally allowed only on points of law and not on facts. If you believe there has been a gross error or miscarriage of justice, you may also consider filing a revision petition.

    Please note that this is a general opinion based on the information you provided. For a more detailed analysis and personalized advice, I encourage you to schedule a consultation with me or another divorce lawyer in Chandigarh.
