In divorce cases, there are two choices: you can either settle with your spouse out of court, or trust your luck in the divorce court casino. But know full well, that judge’s hear this stuff all day long, day in day out, and your case is not unique in that sense. Judge’s also do not like to micro manage people’s lives, and will do anything, including throwing the attorneys out into the hallway during a trial, to avoid having to make a ruling.
That being said, how do you know what is likely to happen? How do you know whether to settle with your spouse or go to trial? The operative word is “reasonable”. If the settlement proposal is reasonable, and it is something you both can live with, although neither likes, and both parties are compromising, then it is probably best to negotiate the offer.
Whether a divorce is resolved by settlement or trial, know that your future depends upon what happens in divorce proceedings. Educate yourself, then trust your instincts.
