Free mediation services are provided at the time of trial for unlawful detainer, small claims, civil harassment restraining orders, and probate cases providing litigants better access to justice and relieving some calendar congestion.

Language: Unlawful Detainer Web Portal for Interpreter Requests - Los Angeles Superior Court New Program
The Unlawful Detainer Web Portal for Interpreter Requests allows parties in unlawful detainer cases to schedule an interpreter for a language other than Spanish via a web portal on the court's website.
