Yes, the Judge is only going to deal with your matter within that hour. You can speak to the other party prior to the hearing. Contact details of all the parties will be emailed to court, so you would be able to call them on that number. The Judge is not going to talk to you privately unless there is any specific reason to do so. Both parties will be able to hear what other party has to say. What worries you most please?
I understand. Normally what happens is that the Judge will give both parties' to reconsider their position after giving his/her indication and will call all the parties again either after lunch or at a fixed time.
Yes, of course. If both parties are legally represented and come to a settlement, the lawyers will draft an order which will be sent to judge for approval and then signed by the parties. DocuSign on pdf is used most of the time in a remote hearing but parties can print and physically sign too.
