The Veterans Assistance Project (VAP) is a voluntary referral service for veterans who come in contact with the court system and who may be in need of veterans services from their local Veterans Service Office. The goal is to get services and support to improve the quality of life for the men, women, and families who have made sacrifices in the defense of the United States. Available services can include mental health counseling, addiction services, legal services, and housing.

The judge, court administrator or a police officer may suggest that the parties in a conflict try to settle their differences through mediation. This is a confidential process, which allows the parties to meet with a trained mediator who will aid them in resolving their dispute. You may request mediation before your court date or instead of filing a formal complaint, and the court will decide if your case is eligible. Neighborhood disputes are often resolved best through mediation.
