More Wallet Friendly

Civil court is expensive. Often, you may be required to pay an “appearance fee,” just to show up. This is in addition to the costs of taking time off work, traveling to the courthouse, and more. With Zeyo, there are no appearance fees. If you choose to Settle Right Away, you actually pay 15% less than the full claim amount. If you choose to go to a hearing and win your case, nothing is owed. If you lose, you will owe the claim amount.

Bad news: a claim has been filed against you

Now here's some good news.

It looks like someone has filed a claim against you, using Zeyo. There are probably very few things worse than having a claim brought against you, but there is one thing we’re certain of: our process is a much, much better alternative to going to civil court. The civil court process is expensive, inconvenient, exhausting, and can be embarrassing. So while having a claim brought against you is never the best, it could be worse: it could have been brought against you in civil court.

Zeyo is a neutral, online court of arbitration that provides a forum for two parties to resolve a dispute. Our process is meant as a last resort before needing to go to civil court. Your opponent has chosen to use our platform to invite you to settle the dispute in front of an arbitrator, or to settle the matter immediately with legally binding paperwork. Our process is neutral, confidential, much quicker than going to court and provides legal paperwork that ensures this matter will be settled once and for all. If you choose to not accept this invitation to resolve the matter on Zeyo, you may end up being sued in civil court. In fact, more than 50% of respondents who chose not to accept the invitation to arbitrate via Zeyo end up being sued in civil court.

Video Conference Hearing

If you chose to have a hearing, you will be brought to a case details page. Here, you can upload evidence, add witnesses or authorized representatives, and message the opponent, Zeyo, and the arbitrator as you prepare for your hearing. Our hearings are conducted via video conference with a neutral arbitrator.
