1. Set a date for trial

Ask the court to set a date for a trial. To do this, complete a Notice to Set Action Down for Trial form and file it with the court. The court clerk can give you this form.

Only ask for a trial date if you and the defendant are sure you can't reach an agreement.

If you want help reaching an agreement, you can try alternative dispute resolution, such as working with a mediator. The ADR Institute of Ontario has a service to help you find a mediator.
