Sorry but this does not require you follow any rules just a well organized discussion.
My name is Stephen R. Cohen and have practiced since 1974. I practice in Los Angeles and Orange County, CA. These answers do not create an attorney client relationship. My answers may offend I believe in telling the truth, I use common sense as well as the law. Other state's laws may differ.. There are a lot of really good attorneys on this site, I will do limited appearances which are preparation of court documents it is , less expensive. However generally I believe an attorney is better than none.
Go to the LA Superior court web site and look up the local rules. Rule 3.25 will give you the information you need. Subsection (b) has specific rules for settlement conferences.
Every Superior Court in California has a website with the information you are looking for. Check the local rules for the Settlement Conference Statement requirements.
