- The arbitration agreement is reciprocally binding on all parties but neither party is precluded from seeking remedies in small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of its jurisdiction.
- The consumer retains the right to pursue unavailable remedies in court.
- The consumer will have the right to participate in the process of choosing the arbitrator(s).
- This clause is not meant in any way to discourage the consumer’s right to counsel.
- With respect to the cost of the arbitration, when a consumer initiates arbitration against the company, the fees and expenses shall be borne upon each party as their own with the exception of the arbitration fees, which will be halved, by each party. JAMS is a commercial entity that charges fees for services. The amount you can expect to pay will vary with the experience of the arbitrator and the length of your arbitration. When the arbitration is initiated by Divorce Cures, TEN shall bear all fees associated with the arbitration but may recover damages or other compensation from consumer as a result of the arbitration process.
