Should I Take My Divorce To Trial?
In an ideal world, every couple going through a divorce could resolve matters out of court. However, this is simply not always possible. In many divorce cases, litigation is the best option to achieve a favorable outcome.
But determining whether you should go to trial is not easy. Having achieved countless successful verdicts and out-of-court arrangements, Law Office of Nikki Hudman can evaluate your circumstances and help you decide which path to choose.
We Use Litigation Strategically
Texas requires all couples to try mediation or use collaborative divorce when possible. Many couples can reach agreements on major issues out of court. But sometimes, it is favorable to go to court for one specific issue — for example, if both of you want to keep the marital home.
Litigation can be time-consuming and expensive. Law Office of Nikki Hudman will help you use it strategically. If we feel that we can achieve a better outcome for you in court than in private negotiations, we are ready to go to trial.
When Is Litigation The Better Option?
Alternative divorce methods have the benefit of keeping your issues private and giving you more control over the results. But these methods do not benefit every couple. A divorce trial may be better for you if:
- You have only one specific issue to litigate
- Your spouse refuses to cooperate
- The relationship between you is contentious
- You both have very different wishes about major issues
Our attorney can give you practical expectations about what to expect from mediation, collaborative divorce and litigation so you can decide which option is best for you.
