Family Law Overview
How Does a Family Law Matter Differ From Other Litigation?
In most lawsuits, one issue is being litigated, and the relevant facts do not change during the pendency of the matter. Family law cases, on the other hand, involve a number of different issues. During the case’s pendency of the case new events may occur or facts may change.
For example, during the pendency of a divorce, circumstances impacting a child’s best interest may dramatically change, or any number of different events may impact the value of a business. The housing market, the overall economy, or a party’s employment may change between the date of separation and the date of settlement or trial. These types of changes make resolving a divorce far more complicated than when there is only one issue and all facts are static.
It is critical to analyze each issue as it relates to or impacts other issues.
