The golden rule of any legal dispute is it’s always cheaper to settle. But settling doesn’t always produce a fair result, so the parties may need to weigh the additional costs against the potential benefits of going to trial. At the Arami Law Office, we encourage our clients to have clear goals for any litigation and to be realistic about their attainability. Our trial experience allows us to predict with reasonable accuracy how a judge is likely to rule on many issues. We provide accurate assessments so you can make an informed decision about how to proceed. That said, there are times when a trial is necessary to obtain a just resolution. You can trust us to litigate your case aggressively, with the utmost preparation and the full application of our courtroom skills.
A contested divorce means that the spouses have not reached agreement on one or more of the issues necessary for a final divorce settlement. The most frequently litigated family law issues are child custody and property distribution. When issues are held over for trial, there is a wait of about six months for a court date. During this time, the attorneys prepare for trial, which may involve the following:
A trial can last one day or several days before the judge renders a decision. This depends on the number of issues and their complexity.
