If you think there is a problem with the arbitration decision, you need to respond with a motion in opposition.
A motion to confirm arbitration will result in the court entering a judgment against you based on the arbitration award which can be enforced through a collection action.
There are very limited reasons for challenging an arbitration decision in Florida. You need to consult with an attorney to determine if you have a basis to challenge the award.

If you are the "qualifier" for the business, you are responsible for complying with the statutory duties of a "qualifier" whether or not you are the owner. If the company you are qualifying violates the statutes regulating construction, the qualifier could lose his/her license.
