At the CP Law Firm our philosophy is to try to reach amicable settlements in of our divorce cases because taking a case to trial is extremely expensive for both parties (the Husband and the Wife). Sometimes, however, both parties cannot agree on certain issues and when that happens the only option left is to have a judge decide. It is important to understand that even the judge in divorce cases will try to get the parties to settle on the day of trial often citing to the displeasure even the judge will have by not being able to make everyone happy with his or her decision. Think about it. A complete stranger will hear witness testimony in your case for several days sometimes, depending on the complexity of the issues involved, and then slam down the gavel with a decision as to what you all must do with your property and your children. There is no way to accurately predict whether the decisions will be favorable to either party. That is why it is extremely important to keep an open mind when trying to settle the case. Both parties should be creative when contemplating viable options to settle equitable distribution, timesharing and other divorce issues.
