ED and Discovery Conference

I have a scheduled ED and Discovery conference coming up soon. What can I expect? Is this the conference before the hearing? Will a hearing be scheduled after the conference? I no longer have a attorney so I don’t know what to bring or how I should go about the conference. I have already had a Interiem Distribution hearing and my former attorney has already filed my financial affidavit.

The ED and discovery conference is a meeting between the parties, their lawyers and the judge to set due dates for discovery, alternative dispute resolution (mediation or a judicial settlement conference), and the final trial date may also be set, depending on your county.
