Do I have to Attend Court?

If you have a dispute that needs resolving it can be daunting, nerve-wracking and financially prohibitive to attend Court.  So, do you have to go to Court? The short answer is no.  Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is any method utilised for negotiating a settlement without the use of Court proceedings.  However, even if you have issued Court proceedings you can still enter into ADR with the agreement of the other party or parties.  There are various forms of ADR, some of which are detailed below, together with the advantages and disadvantages of each; but as a general rule, ADR is less stressful and more cost effective than Court proceedings.
