6. DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION
Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer's satisfaction by calling our Customer
Care Center at
In the unlikely event that the LZ Divorce Service, LLC Customer Care Center is unable to
resolve your complaint to your satisfaction (or if LZ Divorce Service, LLC has not been able to resolve a dispute it
has with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding
arbitration or in small claims court rather than in a court of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is less
formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for
more limited discovery than a court does, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Any arbitration
under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not
permitted. While in some instances, upfront costs to file an arbitration claim may exceed similar costs to
bring a case in court, for any non-frivolous claim that does not exceed $75,000, LZ Divorce Service, LLC will pay all
costs of the arbitration. Moreover, in arbitration you may recover attorney's fees from LZ Divorce Service, LLC to the
same extent or more as you would in court.
Under certain circumstances (as explained below), LZ Divorce Service, LLC will pay you more than the amount of the
arbitrator's award and will pay your attorney (if any) his or her reasonable attorney's fees if the
arbitrator awards you an amount greater than what LZ Divorce Service, LLC offered you to settle the dispute.
You may speak with independent counsel before using this Site or completing any purchase.
(a) LZ Divorce Service, LLC and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us before a single arbitrator.
The types of disputes and claims we agree to arbitrate are intended to be broadly interpreted. It applies,
without limitation, to:
- claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract,
tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory;
- claims that arose before these or any prior Terms (including, but not limited to, claims relating to
- claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of
a certified class and claims that may arise after the termination of these Terms.
For the purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, references to "LZ Divorce Service, LLC," "you," and "us" include our
respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns,
as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or products under these Terms
or any prior agreements between us.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. This
arbitration agreement does not preclude your bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local
agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by
entering into these Terms, you and LZ Divorce Service, LLC are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to
participate in a class action. These Terms evidence a transaction or website use in interstate commerce, and
thus the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This
arbitration provision will survive termination of these Terms.
(b) A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send, by U.S. certified mail, a written Notice of
Dispute ("Notice") to the other party. A Notice to LZ Divorce Service, LLC should be addressed to: Notice of Dispute,
General Counsel, LZ Divorce Service, LLC, ADDRESS_COMPANY DUMMY (the "Notice
Address"). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) set forth the
specific relief sought ("Demand"). If LZ Divorce Service, LLC and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim
within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or LZ Divorce Service, LLC may commence an arbitration proceeding.
During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by LZ Divorce Service, LLC or you shall not be
disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or
LZ Divorce Service, LLC is entitled.
You may download or copy a form Notice from
You may download or copy a form to initiate arbitration from the AAA website at
(c) After LZ Divorce Service, LLC receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will
promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $75,000.
(Currently, the filing fee for consumer-initiated arbitrations is $200, but this is subject to change by the
arbitration provider. If you are unable to pay this fee, LZ Divorce Service, LLC will pay it directly after receiving a
written request at the Notice Address.) The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Dispute
Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the "AAA
Rules") of the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA"), as modified by these Terms, and will be
administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at
1-800-778-7879. (You may obtain information about the arbitration process directed to non-lawyers, including
information about providing notice to LZ Divorce Service, LLC, at
The arbitrator is bound by these Terms. All
issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and
interpretation of the arbitration provision and the scope, enforceability, and interpretation of paragraph
(f) are for the court to decide. Unless LZ Divorce Service, LLC and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will
take place in the county (or parish) of your contact address. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, you may
choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the
arbitrator, by a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If you
choose to proceed either in person or by telephone, we may choose to respond only by telephone or
submission. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the AAA Rules will determine whether you have a right to a
hearing. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a
reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings of fact and conclusions of law on
which the award is based. The parties agree that in any arbitration of a dispute or claim, neither party
will rely for preclusive effect on any award or finding of fact or conclusion of law made in any other
arbitration of any dispute or claim to which LZ Divorce Service, LLC was a party. Except as otherwise provided for
herein, LZ Divorce Service, LLC will pay all AAA filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration
initiated in accordance with the notice requirements above. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either
the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper
purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment
of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse LZ Divorce Service, LLC for
all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. In
addition, if you initiate an arbitration in which you seek relief valued at more than $75,000 (excluding
attorney’s fees and expenses), the payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA rules.
(d) If, after finding in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim, the arbitrator issues you an
award that is greater than the value of LZ Divorce Service, LLC's last written settlement offer made before an
arbitrator was selected, then LZ Divorce Service, LLC will:
pay you either the amount of the award or $2,000 ("the alternative payment"), whichever is greater; and pay
your attorney, if any, the amount of attorney's fees, and reimburse any expenses (including expert witness
fees and costs), that your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim
in arbitration (the "attorney's payment").
If LZ Divorce Service, LLC did not make a written offer to settle the dispute before an arbitrator was selected, you
and your attorney will be entitled to receive the alternative payment and the attorney's fees, respectively,
if the arbitrator awards you any relief on the merits. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes
as to the payment and reimbursement of fees, expenses, and the alternative payment and the attorney's fees
at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator's
ruling on the merits. In assessing whether an award that includes attorney’s fees or expenses is greater
than the value of LZ Divorce Service, LLC’s last written settlement offer, the arbitrator shall include in his or her
calculations only the value of any attorney’s fees or expenses you reasonably incurred before LZ Divorce Service, LLC’s
settlement offer .
(e) The right to attorney's fees and expenses discussed in paragraph (d) supplements any right to attorney's
fees and expenses you may have under applicable law. Thus, if you would be entitled to a larger amount under
applicable law, this provision does not preclude the arbitrator from awarding you that amount. However, you
may not recover duplicative awards of attorney's fees or costs. Although under some laws LZ Divorce Service, LLC may
have a right to an award of attorney's fees and expenses if it prevails in an arbitration proceeding,
LZ Divorce Service, LLC will not seek such an award.
(f) The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only
to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND LZ Divorce Service, LLC
AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES AND NOT AS
PLAINTIFFS OR CLASS MEMBERS IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OR IN THE CAPACITY OF A
PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL. Further, unless both you and LZ Divorce Service, LLC agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not
consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative
or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court could award that is individualized to
the claimant and would not affect other customers. Neither you nor we may seek non-individualized relief
that would affect other customers. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of
this paragraph's limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must
be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
(g) If the amount in dispute exceeds $75,000 or either party seeks any form of injunctive relief, either
party may appeal the award to a three-arbitrator panel administered by AAA by a written notice of appeal
within thirty (30) days from the date of entry of the written arbitration award. An award of injunctive
relief shall be stayed during any such appeal. The members of the three-arbitrator panel will be selected
according to AAA rules. The three-arbitrator panel will issue its decision within one hundred and twenty
(120) days of the date of the appealing party's notice of appeal. The decision of the three-arbitrator panel
shall be final and binding, subject to any right of judicial review that exists under the FAA.
(h) Notwithstanding any provision in the applicable Terms to the contrary, we agree that if we make any
future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to any notice address, website link or
telephone number provided herein), that change will not apply to any dispute of which we had written notice
on the effective date of the change. Moreover, if we seek to terminate this arbitration provision, any such
termination will not be effective until at least thirty (30) days after written notice of such termination
is provided to you, and shall not be effective as to disputes which arose prior to the date of
7. Additional Terms. Some LZ Divorce Service, LLC Services may be subject to additional posted guidelines, rules or
