Can I Settle With My Spouse And Avoid the Request for Order Hearing or Trial?

Top Orange County divorce lawyers; The Maggio Law Firm

There are 2 primary options for resolving issues in your Orange County divorce case:

Stipulation (Agreement) of the Parties:
When parties are able to work together in reaching agreements for temporary orders or final settlement of their entire marital dissolution case, a “Stipulation & Order” for temporary orders or a “Marital Settlement Agreement” can be drafted by the attorney outlining the terms of such agreement which the parties and their respective counsel will sign and when filed with the court, they become official orders of the court.

Trial:
If the spouses ultimately are unable to reach a more “permanent” agreement on all custody, visitation and related issues, the parties will need to request that a trial date be set to have the judge assigned to the case decide the issues. There are not juries in family law court, so such issues are generally decided by the Judge or a Commissioner of the Family Law Court.
