Q: How does it work?

A: Each party to the dispute books a private consultation with the Arbitrator. Once the initial consultations have taken place, the parties schedule a hearing with the Arbitrator. When the hearing has concluded, the Arbitrator will write their binding decision and the matter will be closed.

Q: The other party does not want to use arbitration. How do I get them to use this process?

A: Arbitration is a voluntary process, however, many matters require the use of an Alternative Dispute Resolution such as arbitration in order to continue with the litigation process. Avoid unnecessary costs and save time by using arbitration first. If the other party has questions about this process, have them contact us and we would be happy to provide answers and more information admin@commonsenselawyer.com

Q: I'm not from Saskatoon. Can I still use your office for arbitration services?

A: We're happy to offer online arbitration services for individuals needing a more flexible option than having to attend in person meetings and hearings.

Q: Does arbitration work? Should I just go to court instead?

A: Arbitration results in a binding decision. Meetings and hearings for arbitration are scheduled based on the parties' schedule instead of on the court's schedule. Court may be expensive and time-consuming, whereas arbitration can be set up to be cost sharing between the parties and accomplished in the timeline of the parties choosing.
