Mediation is required in some cases, and the court will set a deadline for the parties to complete mediation at the initial pre-trial conference. Parties can select a private mediator upon which they agree, usually the cost is around 250 an hour, and the fee split. In some counties judicial settlement conferences are used in which a judge acts as mediator with no cost to the parties.
