Going to court to argue out an issue is an intimidating prospect for most people. Aside from the fear that you may lose your case, the amount of time the proceedings will take, the money it will cost to hire an attorney and the stress of it all makes many people want to avoid court all together. That is why alternative dispute resolutions are available.
When you are trying to settle a dispute, there are more ways to do so than heading straight to the courtroom. In fact, in Florida, you are required to complete mediation prior to any litigation. You can complete alternative forms of dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration, for a number of different types of issues, such as real estate and construction matters, or even issues with the homeowners' association.
