If you're dealing with a difficult problem or dispute, you should contact Mediation Services first. If telephone conciliation or mediation are successful, you'll save time and money, and you won't have to risk "losing your case" in court.
When you can't reach an acceptable settlement through mediation, you can contact the Visalia small claims advisor at 559.372.9795 for information about how to file, serve, prepare, and present your case in court. The advisor can also explain some of the procedures for enforcing a judgment from the small claims court.
