Resolving Civil Disputes

Frequently Asked Questions

A civil dispute is a disagreement between two or more people that cannot be resolved informally and involves one or more legal claims. Common examples of civil disputes include contract disputes, property disputes, and debt disputes.

You can resolve a civil dispute through mediation, arbitration, or filing a lawsuit in court. All three options require the parties to communicate and cooperate with each other to reach a resolution.

Mediation is often chosen because it is less expensive and time-consuming than arbitration or going to court, and it allows the parties to retain control over the outcome of the dispute.

If you have been served with a lawsuit, you should contact a lawyer immediately. You will need to file a response to the lawsuit with the court, and the deadlines for doing so are often very short. Talking to a lawyer will help you understand your legal rights and options.
