Rather than going to court, you should consider some form of alternative dispute resolution such as mediation. If you have commenced court proceedings, you should also consider these options to resolve your dispute. Remember that every step taken in court proceedings may involve costs. So if you can reach a mutually agreeable settlement, you will save yourself money and stress.

Queensland Courts encourages parties to use alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods to resolve their disputes and reach agreement themselves. This allows them to avoid the expense, time and conflict of a trial.

You can organise your own private dispute resolution or use the ADR process available for civil cases in the Supreme and District Courts. Mediation is also available in the Magistrates Court.

Case appraisal and mediation are the two main types of ADR through Queensland Courts.

While an independent third party can help you resolve disputes through ADR, you still have the right to go to a trial if the dispute doesn’t settle.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) includes a variety of methods outside of court proceedings which can result in a binding or non-binding agreement to resolve a legal problem. Methods include:

    • Mediation
    • Arbitration
    • Expert Determination
    • Conciliation
    • Collaborative law
