Mediation Hearings

The court system includes a compulsory mediation conference for any issue involving minor children’s residency. Also, the court may refer a case to a Judicial Settlement Conference, if the case is approaching a trial. It is important to be fully prepared for these conferences. Even if a conference does not result in settlement, the outcome may dictate the course of future negotiations or narrow the issues to be presented at trial.
