What is a Trial?

A trial in your case will decide the issues that you and the other party have not resolved. The primary issues to be resolved in any family court case involving one or more children include a determination of 1) Legal decision-making and parenting time rights with respect to any minor child; and 2) An appropriate child support order including provisions for medical insurance, medical costs of all children not covered by insurance, and an allocation of any federal tax exemptions applicable to the minor children; and 3) Whether any party should be awarded any reasonable attorney's fees incurred in this matter. If your case is a dissolution or separation of a marriage, the court will also determine: 1) An equitable division of community property; 2) Responsibility for payment of any community debts; and 3) Spousal maintenance (previously known as alimony)
