    What if I cannot attend on the date set for the settlement conference?

    If you don't show up, the judge may order another settlement conference, or rule against you or dismiss your claim, and you may have to pay the defendant's costs.

    If you have a very good reason to ask for an adjournment (and "I'm not ready" isn't a good reason), you can contact the court office and ask the court to reschedule the trial. You should also contact the defendant-it's helpful if you can both agree to find a new date for the trial.
