The parenting plan requests the disputed between parties shall be submitted to biding arbitration. The arbitration is already done. My question, do I need confirm the biding arbitration award in court?It is binding arbitration, not biding. It is in WA.
Sorry, but it depends...maybe. Typically a party will confirm an award or file the award in court for enforcement when it is clear or likely the other side has no intention of abiding by the award -- even though it's supposed to be binding. Another reason to conform an award is to get a formal court judgment "on the record," which gives you a lot more opportunities for enforcing an award just like a regular court judgment.
