How Do You Apply For Arbitration?
Typically, to begin an arbitration, one party completes an arbitration claim form, files it with the arbitration administrator and pays and a filing fee, if any. The other party then responds. The court can order arbitration, sometimes one party can demand it, or the parties can agree to it. Many states have adopted statutes that require the parties to attempt to arbitrate their dispute before they can go to court. This cuts down on court calendar congestion, and gives the parties a much less expensive method for resolving their dispute before the expense of litigation and timeconsuming nature of the court system is entered into.
