In a family law case, traditional litigation involves filing a case in court for divorce, custody, or child support. Traditional litigation may also involve filing a motion after a case has concluded, asking the Judge to make a ruling on a specific issue. The parties in a traditionally litigated case may be self-represented or may hire attorneys to represent them in court.
A traditionally litigated case can move forward in a number of different ways, depending on the parties' goals and behavior during the case. Generally, the case or motion will conclude either when the parties reach an agreement or when the Judge makes a decision for the parties.
