Should My Divorce Case Proceed to Trial?

new york divorce lawyer
The judge told all the parties to either settle the divorce case. Or, go to trial where he will decide their future.
Every day in State Supreme Courts in New York City, Judges warn divorce litigants that if they do not settle their case another way, they will proceed to trial. Whether you should go to trial or not should be determined after a long discussion with your lawyer. You should make sure the lawyer that you have has the experience to actually try your case. 
Many divorce litigants are surprised at how little experience their own lawyer actually has once a case goes to court. Sometimes people must go to trial because their husband or wife is actually crazy. Some people are so bitter that they cannot determine if the deal that is on the table is actually a fair deal. It is good to let a separation case go to trial without having solicited the services of a competent New York divorce lawyer.

Trial Specifics

A divorce trial normally consists of both parties and their respective lawyers. They present evidence. Then, they do cross-examinations to try and bolster the merit of their particular case; compromising the merits of the opposition.
In the state of New York, if a divorce case proceeds to court, all evidence will be tried and analyzed by a judge, not a jury. This means that the judge alone makes final decisions as to the outcomes and resolutions. 
Make sure you have a divorce lawyer in New York who actually has experience. An experienced divorce lawyer who has trial experience will generally always prevail against a lawyer without the same level of experience. Counseling people during a divorce is a skill, many lawyers lack this skill and ultimately their clients will suffer. A deal is only good if your divorce lawyer explains all the ramifications of the settlement. If your lawyer cannot answer your questions in an intelligent and coherent manner, Run.
