Does my family law case need to be resolved in a trial?

Michael Geary answers: 

Probably not. A substantial number of family law cases are resolved in mediation or some other form of alternative dispute resolution method and never go to trial. After you have provided your attorney with details about your assets and debts, and the issues in your divorce, he/she should be able to adequately advise you regarding a settlement. Understand your options and weigh them against the costs of continued litigation.
