This article will explain how to dismiss (or cancel) a filed Small Claims document on your Dispute Dashboard. In short, Dispute cannot dismiss a case from the court on your behalf, but we provide the court’s contact information which will be your starting point for requesting dismissal.

Canceling a case on your dashboard will stop Dispute from processing your case. Dispute will not notify the courthouse on your behalf when you cancel your case on your dashboard.


Prerequisites:

Purchased and successfully filed Small claims ($99) or Concierge ($349) service.

Instructions:

Access your account via getdispute.com and sign using the button “Sign In” in the top right-hand corner.
