The Getdone representative may not force a solution between the two parties at this stage but is allowed to forbid a solution proposed by either party if that violates the present Terms of Service
If no agreement is found after step #2 either party must write to Getdone and ask to open a dispute.

Dealing with a dispute
A dispute may be opened by Client and/or Freelancer by contacting Getdone via email at support@getdone.co or by contacting the customer service through the live chat.

A dispute may be opened for any of these cases:
- Client and Freelancer were not able to resolve a controversy (generic dispute)

If the person needs to attach more than ten documents we suggest to create a zip archive.
- The parties have fourteen (14) days to complete in the form and provide any information needed to prove their case.
- If both parties fail to submit the form within fourteen days the parties will have the option to continue and finish the work. If they don’t want to continue the work the task will be marked as abandoned and neither party will receive any funds. Getdone will not accept to re-open the dispute.
