We Can Resolve Everything Except Property Division

Does the judge decide our entire case if we can resolve everything except how to divide some of our property?

John J. Gilligan, a family lawyer in Long Beach, answers:

The judge decides all issues that you and your spouse are unable to agree upon. Before the trial starts, the judge will typically want to see all of your agreed upon issues in writing and signed by both parties or read into the record. The judge will then hear testimony and make decisions for any unresolved issues.
