 Mediation.  Mediation is a confidential, structured, non-adversarial process that allows a neutral third party to assist disputing parties in reaching a mutually acceptable solution. The mediation process can be a less expense, informal, and more meaningful alternative than the traditional trial process. This is because of the efforts of trained volunteers and the resolution being decided by the participants. The court will refer appropriate cases to mediation.

 Payments.   Payments are accepted until 3:45 PM. Any payment made after 3:45 PM will be entered into the Administrative Office of the Court's System on the following work morning.  The court accepts credit card payments (Visa/Mastercard/Discover) for traffic and criminal payments.
