You are correct that it's an arbitration clause, requiring legal disputes to be resolved in an arbitration proceeding rather than a court.

Rules governing arbitrations could also be specific to the organizations overseeing the proceedings. As a GENERAL matter, in...Read more »

a response is not a form. you have to write out a response on pleading paper using legal authority. you usually have to file a response within 10 days of their petition. so get this done asap. you can file a separate petition to confirm arbitration award and you probably need to do that at this...Read more »

You are both owners of the vehicle as you are both on the title. If you are the only one who signed the promissory note to purchase/pay for the vehicle, then you are the only person legally responsible for the vehicle.
