Not all Placer County disputes must be settled by a judge. Instead, couples can often resolve disagreements outside court using alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques. One of the most popular is mediation, where a couple meets with a third person who listens impartially and suggests ways to solve a dispute. Other techniques can include arbitration, where the couple presents evidence to a neutral arbitrator, who decides the case much as a judge would. However, arbitration is private and is therefore a good option for famous or high net-worth couples who want to avoid the prying eyes of the press.
