Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you tonight.
The court should set deadlines for motions, discovery, etc at the NISI hearing. This is normally part of such a hearing so that all parties are aware of the cut offs well ahead of trial.The court should allow at least 60 days to 90 days for discovery and pretrial motions to be filed and heard.The court usually requires discovery to be completed at least 45 days out.Pretrial motions would be scheduled to be completed at least 30 days out. And then finally a trial date agreeable to all.
A decree nisi or rule nisi (from Latin nisi, meaning "unless") is a court order here in your case that does not have any force unless a particular condition is met. Once the condition is met, the ruling becomes a decree absolute (rule absolute), and is binding.So here when mediation failed the order would then having you go back in front of the court to sett the deadlines for discovery and pretrial motions here.
