You Can Hire Your Own Judge For Divorce
It is no secret that the Los Angeles County court system is overburdened. Thanks to budget cuts, the wait to resolve your divorce in front of a judge is growing. When the time comes, the courts have limited time to hear and decide your case. Even with a skilled lawyer on your side, the time constraints can be debilitating. Will the judge have sufficient time to understand your situation and come to the right conclusion?
Thankfully, you are not required to resolve your differences in the Los Angeles County Superior Court system. At the Law Offices of Thomas M. Polinger, we often recommend another option: private judge divorce litigation. This option comes with several important benefits.
The Benefits Of Hiring A Private Judge For Your Divorce
The most obvious benefit of private judge divorce is the time you will be able to spend with a judge can be measured not in minutes, but in hours. Needless to say, this means the judge will have the time to thoroughly review all of the facts of your case and consider it from all angles before reaching a conclusion.
A private judge divorce can function in much the same way as a traditional divorce, except it is presided over by a judge who is hired privately and handled outside of the Los Angeles County court system. This option offers a great deal of flexibility, depending on the needs of the parties involved. Because the private judge is hired by the parties through their attorneys, there is room for creative options to be explored by the parties, their counsel and the private judge. The judge, the attorneys and the spouses work together to find a solution that is uniquely suited to each case.
Another benefit, since it is outside of the Los Angeles County court system, is that it is much more confidential. It is farther away from the prying eyes of the public, which is why it has become so popular with public figures, from officers and directors of nationally recognized businesses to politicians to celebrities and athletes.
