motion for continuanceBy Leslie Lorenzano

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Lawyer

A common question parties in a family law matter ask is, "How long will this process take?" What often drags out the process is a Motion for Continuance.

Courts usually schedule a hearing simply by looking at its own calendar of availability. The court then sends out an order setting the hearing date and time to the parties and their divorce attorneys. 

Thus, often a situation arises where either a party or his/her attorney has a scheduling conflict with the date selected by the court. 

A common remedy to this situation is to file a Motion to Continue the hearing, which requests that the court reschedule the hearing for a new date and time.

mediation agreementBy Leslie Lorenzano

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Lawyer

If you are engaging in mediation, the ultimate goal is to come to an agreement to resolve your case and avoid the financial and emotional toll of litigation. 

Mediation can itself be a long and taxing process, but a successful mediation can give parties a sense of satisfaction that litigation and a bare-bones order from the judge may not be able to provide.
