Judicial direction to interlocution

This judicial direction is a short-term measure and takes the form of individual casework and advice. The judge decides about the number of sessions; usually it ranges between three (minimum) and five (maximum).

This direction works well with clearly defined issues and problems concerning debt and job counselling or the particular offence. In special cases the direction to interlocution aims at motivating the client to make use of long-term services (therapy etc.).
