When parties cannot agree on how to resolve their case, the parties must submit their disagreements to the Judge for decision. In family law litigation, it is the attorney's role to present to the Court the evidence that best supports the client's position. The attorney also helps the client understand the Court's deadlines and how to effectively navigate the legal system. If the parties cannot agree on an issue in their family law matter, the Court applies the law to the facts of that particular case. Litigation in a family law matter can be expensive and uncertain. Because the Court has broad discretion on issues such as how the parties share time with their child, whether a party is entitled to alimony, and which party receives a particular asset or liability, it is difficult to predict how a case will be resolved by the Court. This is one of the many reasons why many clients settle their case outside of Court. However, there are certain circumstances that require Court intervention, particularly if one of the parties is taking an untenable position. In those cases, litigation may be unavoidable.
