Responding to an Arbitration Claim

Please note these instructions do not apply to AMSA or Domain Name cases.

If you have been served with an arbitration claim, the first thing to do is to obtain a copy of the Rules that apply to your dispute. Forum's Arbitration Rules are linked below. For help in identifying which Rules apply to your dispute, please contact us at You have thirty days to respond to the claim against you and file any counterclaim. If you do not respond to an arbitration claim, the rules presume you are denying the allegations in the claim, but no counterclaim may be filed after thirty days. The forms you need are linked below.

There are several options for filing your response. If you have a counterclaim and choose the File Online option, you can also opt to pay the filing fees online.
