What do I have to bring with me to arbitration?

You should be prepared to present your case in full as though you were appearing before the Judge. Please refer to the back of your Notification to Parties form (a yellow copy which you signed) for additional information. However, before the hearing you should have:

  • Completed your disclosure (according to the Cochise County Local Rules) not less than five days in advance of the hearing
  • Prepared and brought any evidence you wish to use to support your claim
  • Notified any witnesses, ensured they will be present by summons if necessary, and shared their names and addresses with the other parties
  • Prepared a sufficient number of copies of any evidentiary documents you may need to support your case, including a copy for the arbitrator

Bring your witnesses and all of your evidentiary materials to the arbitration hearing.
