Finished Trial - another update

Unread postby hoot74 » Fri Oct 13, 2017 8:12 am

We just finished a 4-week trial. At issue was my claim that the children are being alienated whereas my ex claimed that the oldest two of three girls (7, 13, and 15) want to live with her during the school week. Three experts were called on direct and two on rebuttal.

The Judge ordered a Lincoln hearing for the children on next Friday. We are allowed to submit questions.

We are to submit closing arguments on December 31.

Does anyone have advice on what questions we should recommend for the Lincoln Hearing? I understand that there are two categories of questions that we might contemplate, 1) questions that corroborate my testimony and/or discredit my ex's testimony, and 2) questions that reveal alienation.

SMH over the fact that a court spends 4 weeks on one divorce case. I was lucky to get a few hours in each half of my bifurcated case, with 6 months in between halves.

I'd hate to have the bill from 4 weeks of trial, assuming 8 hour days + travel time, I would have been looking around 14k. Then add in what had to be weeks of prep time, I wouldn't be surprised to see that 4 week trial cost over 50k.
