Your Divorce Process

The first petition frequently demands more effort than the plaintiff anticipates. Don’t worry if your spouse claims that she can’t support herself and consequently wants you to pay all subsequent fees. Lawyers often use the first petition for a “want list”.

Early on in the divorce process, both parties can file for temporary orders to address any pressing problem which can’t wait until the conclusion of the divorce.

Just as important it is preparing for your opponent’s case, winning a favorable judgment means you have to be ready to defend against your spouses’ allegations.

SETTLEMENTS & BEYOND

and cash considerations can end with a settlement. You may wait one or two years to your own trial, but meanwhile, both you, and your spouse’s attorneys’ charges will continue to rise. These fees generally increase dramatically since the trial date approaches.

The plaintiff presents proof by calling witnesses and presenting each piece of evidence. Once the plaintiff “rests,” it is the defendant’s turn to present their case. Once both sides have rested, the court could permit the plaintiff to present a “rebuttal” testimony from reacting to the defendant’s evidence.

Divorce proceedings might reveal a torrent of emotions ranging from anger and anxiety to depression. But as hard as this really is, you can’t merely call in sick, because your (and your children ) interests hinge on your ability to push and make good decisions. You have to work to disconnect grievances that are meaningfully related to your children’s welfare from the ones that are offensive to you, however difficult they may be.
