Participants forwarded to DeKalb Dispute Resolution Center or Atlanta Legal Aid to continue the process

Upon approval for participation in the program, your application package was forwarded to either DeKalb Dispute Resolution Center or Atlanta Legal Aid. The email you received informing you of your updated status reflects the agency you should expect to hear from next. The decision on which agency to forward your application to was determined by information contained in your application or other factors from a current pending dispossessory legal action in DeKalb County, if applicable. During this time, you or your attorney will be contacted by the applicable agency in an effort to reach an agreement. The time it may take to be contacted and reach the next step in the process is determined by how many applicants are ahead of you, capacity of available resources, and complexity of each negotiation.
