Family Law Litigation

Litigation refers to the process by which a matter is brought into a formal court setting where the outcome is often determined by a judicial officer, such as a judge or commissioner, after reviewing legal briefs and proceedings and hearing all argument at the hearing. In the traditional Family Law litigation model, each party is represented by an attorney and most issues are brought before the Court through motions and court trials. Even in litigation the parties strive to resolve issues both outside court and within the court system.

The attorneys at Marx & Duffy, LLP have extensive litigation experience, including negotiation, discovery, court motions and trials. While we aggressively represent clients in all phases of litigation, we also strive for the best possible settlement for our clients. Nearly all of our Family Law matters settle without the necessity of a trial.
