Litigation

When all alternatives to resolving disputes fail or the parties simply cannot agree, they may have to proceed to litigation. Court applications are made and the parties usually present evidence in the form of a sworn affidavit. Questioning under oath takes place and this often slow process eventually may lead to a trial. The judge will make a decision based on the evidence before the court. The parties have much less control over the process or decision and litigation can be costly.

She may recommend litigation where a non-adversarial option is not appropriate or as a last resort.
