ADR (alternative dispute resolution) is a means of settling legal disputes in lieu of often costly and time-consuming civil court trials. ADR allows you to control your own disputes and resolve the problem yourself, rather than having a judge and/or jury decide it for you. Two types of ADR are available for civil and domestic cases filed in Cobb County Superior Court.
