    Question [=?] Notice Of Status And Trial Setting Conference

    Could someone please explain what occurs at a Status and Trial Setting Conference? I've received notice to appear on 1-30-06 and have no clue as to what to expect.

    I'm still searching for legal representation. Would it be advisable to have an atty to represent me at this or is it pretty simple and straightforward?

    Also, I wanted to thank each and every one of you who take the time to answer these questions. This board is very informative and very much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    It varies somewhat from judge to judge, but normally this is where the parties and/or their lawyers let the court know what sort of case this will be (e.g., hotly contested or "uncontested"). The court will also set a trial date and probably some pretrial dates. It's not "necessary" to have a lawyer, but if you're going to be getting one, it would be good to have him/her in place so that he/she can direct things from the earliest possible point.
