In any divorce case, its important for individuals to understand that the judge has discretion and wide ranging authority to make orders. Most of the time, it is my experience that client’s do not understand how much authority the judges have to make orders in any area of the case.
Whether it is custody, permanent spousal support, or attorney fees, judges as the trier of fact have a lot of leverage to make orders in the best interest of the children and/or on conflicting facts. For that reason, it is important to seek the advice of a local attorney that can help a party navigate through this process and one that will understand the judge assigned to the case.
