The Process Continued

Gathering the Evidence – Anger and emotional outbursts are not evidence and will usually have a negative effect on your case. Logic will carry the day, so gather all the documents your attorney needs and realize that cooler heads can prevail.

Settle or Fight – After the evidence is gathered, if the facts are clear, most cases settle and the parties agree to the terms of their divorce. When the facts are not clear, the evidence is disputed and the parties cannot agree, generally the Judge will hear the evidence at trial and enter an order in accordance with the law.

Lawyers Help Greatly in the Process – Judge's absolutely do not enjoy conflicted pro se (no lawyer) cases. The unrepresented parties generally do not know the law or their rights, duties and obligations. The unrepresented parties typically will ask the judge for advice and/or explanations regarding their case. However, Judges are prohibited from offering any legal advice, nor can they give you detailed explanations. Even the simplest case requires a Family Law Attorney to ensure your rights are protected.
