There are alternative to litigations. If a person does not wish to go through with litigation then they will have to undergo in an adversarial proceeding. The most common alternatives to litigations include: arbitration with or without a jury, and mediation. Litigation can be done by solely having the attorneys discuss the case with a judge.
This tends to be a pricier alternative to litigation but is widely suggested so that a decision can be determined in timely manner and not take time away from the two opposing parties. Mediation is the second most popular choice because it allows the case to take place outside of the courthouse. Formal litigation tends to take a place over a long period of time and can tend to be an expensive choice in terms of a lawsuit.
