The following describes a basic overview of how most family law court cases move through the court system. Family cases can last a few months or several years, depending on the complexity of the case. The time frame especially depends on the ability of the parties to maneuver through the court system and cooperate in exchanging discovery and moving the case forward. If a case is appealed, it could take a few more years.
We understand all too well the frustration our clients go through when involved in a family law case. Some people can’t afford to hire an attorney and still need to make their way through the legal maze. We hope this guide alleviates the fear of not knowing what type of case they may have or need.
