In many instances, disputes between parties will work out their differences by a discussion. If that fails, the parties may head to court. However, there are some options to resolve the issue before spending the time and money to go through litigation. Mediation, arbitration, and alternative dispute resolution are terms that many Arizonans have heard, but only a few are likely to understand exactly what they are and the difference between them.
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a broad term that encompasses any type of procedure for settling an issue other than by litigation. Arbitration and mediation are two kinds of alternative dispute resolution, but there are more than just these two. In addition, there are different forms of arbitration and different forms of mediation. These alternative dispute resolution procedures aim to arrive at a resolution to a dispute.
