Realistic Overview of Divorce Court

Many people head into divorce court hoping that the judge will see the wrongs that their spouse has inflicted upon them over time and punish the spouse for those wrong-doings. Unfortunately, that is a skewed view of how divorce court operates. The purpose of divorce court is not to punish a spouse, but rather come to a resolution for any ongoing disputes so that the divorce can be settled and finalized. Be aware that you may need to bend on some issues. A judge can help you and your spouse settle any of the following disputes:

  • How to effectively co-parent any children that you may share
  • How to separate property that was purchased during the marriage
  • How the money should be split between spouses
  • How to divide any expensive items such as jewelry, boats, vehicles, or any other items purchased in the marriage

Going through a divorce can be a stressful experience. Taking your divorce to court could add on even more stress. Court is not always a quick process. It may end up dragging out if you and your spouse cannot come to a divorce agreement. For an experienced professional who can help you through your difficult time, contact your divorce lawyer.
