Once a civil suit is formerly filed in the federal court, how long does it take to get the case to trial -- min./max. ?

Atlanta, GA |

Also, can you freeze someones assets before a trial to ensure they are not hiding assets?

A trial date can be set as soon as 45 days from service if both parties agree to go to trial and can be prolonged indefinitely.

You can't freeze someone's assets. Only a State or Federal Judge can do that, and only with cause.
