C. Is a trial before the Judge really necessary? To be candid the majority of cases are resolved without the necessity of trial through attorney assisted negotiation otherwise know as mediation. The Courts uniformly require mediation prior to trial for a reason. That reason being that only matters truly in dispute are brought before the Court for decision. The best hope for a successful mediation, or trial, is preparation. Help the attorney help you by cooperating throughout the process. D. I have a Final Judgment, what does this mean? You are now single and dangerous, congratulations. I would suggest you obtain certified copies of the Final Judgment from the Clerk of Courts in case any offical agency request or requires such. This frequently comes into play with Social Security, Insurance, Brokerage Accounts and Driver License. E. Is it really this simple? Like all matters few things are more complex than the simple. This is a mere introduction or outline. There are far too many variables to cover in a brief memorandum. Each case, including yours, has unique issues and will require competent and experienced Counsel to maneuver through the process. I can only wish you the very best and always know “the best revenge is living well”.
