There are a variety of problem-solving processes referrred to as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) which provide an alternative to a judge resolving your disputes at a formal trial.
ADR can offer cost-effective, fast, and appropriate choices for your individual situation. These methods are less formal than Court hearings and allow you to have greater influence on the outcome of your dispute. In Boulder County, parties are required to participate in ADR prior to most contested Court hearings. Alternative Dispute Resolution options include negotiation, mediation, arbitration, mediation-arbitration, and settlement conferences.
