This would lessen the burden on the courts, and divert families to a process that's generally much faster (which can reduce long-term conflict), can result in better decisions as the decision-maker would be experienced in family law, in a process that can be customized for the circumstances, and is generally much less expensive than trial.

Rather than having to convert the award into a court order first. If there's an issue with the award a person can still apply to the Court for an order staying the award or varying it.
