Doubt about Disputes on Fixed Price contracts

Hello, I have opened a dispute about a fixed price contract because the client refuses to pay me for the work done. My question is about how many days the client has to answer a dispute, and what happens if he does not respond. Thank you

I believe the client has seven days to respond. If he does not respond, then the funds will be released to you.

Hi Amalia,

Just to confirm that Preston advise is correct. The client have 7 days to respond on the dispute request, if no actions are taken the funds will be released towards you.

Thank you guys, ¿and the seven days are counted from the date the dispute tickect was created? 

Correct, Amalia, the count starts from the moment a dispute ticket request is created.

The ticked was created the last saturday, so, the last day for my client to response is tomorrow saturday 3/10, rigth? and ¿will be automatically the dispute solved in the UTC time when the 7 days were reached? or ¿how its works exactly?.

This is my dispute ticket if you want to know: 22553079
