A mandatory settlement conference is required during a divorce if the matter will need to be heard in court. This is a final attempt to try and resolve issues in the divorce matter before needing it to be heard in court, in front of a judge. Resolving the matter before trial is a way to reduces expenses if the matter can be resolved in the mandatory settlement conference.
During a mandatory settlement conference both attorneys and their clients must be present. At this conference the parties will discuss pertinent pending issues in the matter. The two attorneys will have an opportunity to communicate regarding the matter and try to find a proper solution.
