The objective of mediation is for parties in conflict to participate in good faith in a dialogue regarding their dispute, to present their points of view and to explore options for settlement in an effort to reach a mutually satisfactory resolution of their dispute.
The mediator welcomes the participants and explains the mediation process, the mediators role in the process and the rules for mediation.

If the parties reach an agreement and sign it, the agreement may have the validity of a contract.

Any additional questions should be directed to the specific county court named on the traffic ticket.
After getting a traffic ticket, you must decide how you will plead. You have three options: guilty, no contest or not guilty.
