Resolve Your Small Claims Case Online for Free!
If you are in a Small Claims case in Orange County, California, our Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) website may be able to help you negotiate with the other party and settle your case online. The negotiations are convenient, voluntary and confidential. All of our services are free and you can ask for a neutral ODR Facilitator to help you reach an agreement. Once you reach an agreement, your legal settlement or dismissal form can be e-filed.

Benefits of a Legal Settlement
- Saves time and money.
- Avoid having to go to court.
- Resolves the dispute earlier on your own terms.
- You can set up a payment plan. The Plaintiff is usually paid faster and easier than collection. The Defendant can avoid a judgment on their credit record if payments are made on time.
