Early resolution meetings usually take approximately 45 minutes. During the meeting you’ll discuss the offence with a prosecutor. You may also need to speak with a Justice of the Peace.

If you’re unsatisfied with the outcome of the early resolution meeting, you still have the option to request a trial.

If you don’t attend your early resolution meeting, a Justice of the Peace will review the ticket and you may be found guilty in your absence.
