Is a trial the only way to resolve my case?

No. The Court has recently launched a new mediation program.  Mediation is offered at no charge to the parties. If both parties agree to mediation, a licensed mediator will listen to both sides and try to help them come to a mutually acceptable agreement which is fully enforceable. For additional information please read the Mediation information sheet.
