This paper conducts an in-depth investigation into the status of Court-Annexed Mediation in Angeles City, employing a multi-faceted approach that encompasses a comprehensive literature review, interviews with experienced dispute resolution practitioners, and a survey targeting court users. The study aims to elucidate the existing landscape of Court-Annexed Mediation, its inherent advantages, as well as the notable challenges that have impeded its full-scale adoption. The research findings underscore the immense potential of Court-Annexed Mediation, yet reveal that its implementation in Angeles City remains constrained primarily due to infrastructure deficiencies, a shortage of qualified mediators, and limited awareness of this beneficial process among court users.
