Mediation

The Utah County Justice Court has implemented a program whereby all small claims cases will be referred to mediation. Your first small claims court appearance will be for a mediation conference. If a resolution is not reached at mediation, the court will then schedule a trial date.

Mediation is confidential. Nothing that is said in mediation can be used against you in court. Utah Valley University and the Brigham Young University Law School both have mediation programs. Volunteers from these programs will be available at the courthouse to provide free mediation services to you. These individuals are not employed by, or associated with Utah County or the court, and are completely neutral.
