My Motion to Compel Arbitration was granted a couple of weeks ago. I promised a few other members of the forum I would post a redacted copy of my court docs. So see below.
Obviously you will want to fill it in with your own information. In the Case Caption section (Page 1 of most of these docs where it lists VS. your name), you will want to make sure you enter the name exactly as it appears on the complaint you were served with.
In Los Angeles County, anyone can sign up on the court's website to submit documents electronically. If your court has this option, I would suggest using it as it's a time-saver. Lawyers are REQUIRED to use it, but folks like us are not required to do so. You can also reserve court dates using this system.
For example, after I was served, I filed the Motion to Compel Arbitration instead of filing an answer (you can do this in California, per CCP 1281.7. While working on typing up your MTC, you will need to get a hearing date from the court. Using the online system, I picked a date that was about 45 days away. If you don't go the online route, you should be able to telephone the court and ask the clerk if you can calendar your MTC. Be sure the date is far enough in the future that you have enough time to serve the opposing party AND file your proof of service with the court. Although not required, I always have the person who does my mailings send them Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested (CMRRR). This way you have absolute proof they got it.
I'm around to answer questions. I'm not a lawyer by any means, but I can tell you what has worked for me.
