Alternative Dispute Resolution refers to the different ways to resolve legal conflicts outside of court, and includes mediation and arbitration.
Residential Foreclosures almost exclusively are handled through mediation, a process where the parties meet with a mediator, a neutral third party who serves to help the parties narrow the issues and settle the matter. A mediator is not a decision maker, but rather a facilitator. Please visit our “Mediation” tab on the home page to learn more about mediation.
Arbitration refers to the process of resolving legal disputes through the hiring of a neutral person or neutral panel of three individuals who undertake a process similar to a simplified trial. That neutral or panel does determine the case, but the decision is subject in certain instances to further court review.
