Settlement at Trial

It is not uncommon for the judge to want to attempt a final settlement before beginning the hearing. If they do, they will likely try and open a negotiation between the parties to reach a non-adversarial resolution. However, not every judge will do this. Some judges prefer to get started with the hearing.


This is your opportunity to tell the court what you want and why you want it. It is your opportunity to present evidence to either prove your claim or defend against the allegations. This is accomplished through direct and cross examination.
