What to Expect with Divorce Part 2

The process of divorce is often times drawn out to be a long process filled with lots of questions for anyone pursing it. This confusion can tend to make things much more difficult than they need to be so, to help you better prepare yourself here’s what you should expect with divorce part 2.

The Discovery Continued

The fourth part of the discovery is the request for production. This step is typically where things get delayed and slowed because of the nature of the information being obtained. At this time parties will have 30 days to obtain documents like income statements, bank statements, or any other legal documents your attorney feels is necessary for your case.

The final step, if necessary, in the discovery phase is the deposition where sworn testimony is given by the opposing party and any witnesses. This time is also where mediation takes place and a settlement is generally made. If a settlement is not made the information gained in this step can be used in divorce court.

Divorce Court

The third large step in the process follows if mediations fail. In this step both parties will attend divorce court where they will argue their cases before a judge. From the information that each party presents there the judge will ultimately make a decision.

The divorce process can often times be long and difficult but understanding what to expect and how to prepare can be crucial to make it go as smoothly as possible. For more information, feel free to contact us for more information on the divorce process or a consultation!

      I have found Richard to be fair over all with both parties in the capacity of a GAL. There is sometimes where he should not be as lenient in his recommendations, but that is just him using all his options.
