Alternative Dispute Resolution Programs
 
The Mecklenburg County Courts utilize Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) procedures in both Superior and District Court. Both courts in the 26th Judicial District and the Mecklenburg County Bar recognize that alternatives to litigation often provide better means of resolving disputes. The purpose of these ADR procedures is to expedite resolution and reduce costs to litigants.

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) programs have become mandatory in all Superior Court civil actions and in District Court civil cases, mediation in child custody/visitation cases, and equitable distribution proceedings. For more information on mediation in child custody/visitation and equitable distribution proceedings, visit the Family Court web page.

The following techniques for resolving disputes short of trial are available in the 26th Judicial District:
