What If My Claim Is Resolved Before The Hearing?

The manufacturer may contact you to try to settle your claim. Lemon Law creates incentives for both parties to reach a settlement agreement rather than proceeding on to a hearing. It is wise to get complete settlement terms in writing from the manufacturer before withdrawing from the arbitration process. If you do settle, notify the Arbitration Board immediately. You must complete and return a Settlement/Withdrawal form which is provided by the Arbitration Board.

If you withdraw from arbitration before your hearing, you may re­file for arbitration again within the 30 month time limit. However, if it is your second withdrawal, you will not be allowed to re­file for arbitration on the same grounds regardless of when the withdrawal occurred.
