Litigation

Achieving your goals in family law can generally be accomplished in two ways: negotiation or litigation. When negotiation fails, or isn't an option because of the contentious nature of your divorce, The Law & Mediation Offices of Diane J.N. Morin offers experienced representation.

Diane Morin has more than 30 years of experience and is a former prosecutor and defense attorney who knows her way around the courtroom. She has been on both sides and can predict how the other side will react. She can give you multiple strategies on how to litigate your case.

Why Choose Litigation?

Family law litigation is the process of presenting evidence to a judge in an attempt to convince the judge to rule one way over the other on a disputed issue or issues. Issues that can be litigated include:

  • Adoption
  • Child Custody
  • Child Support
  • Divorce
  • Restraining Orders
  • Spousal Support
  • Visitation

Generally, people try to avoid litigation as it tends to be costly and the results are typically not as well received as one side is likely to feel they have not been heard. When litigation becomes necessary, it is critical that you are represented by an experienced attorney. A family law litigation lawyer will advise you of your rights and will advocate on your behalf. Without legal assistance, important evidence and relevant facts may be overlooked. There are clear cut rules of evidence to be followed and definite ways to present your case in court. You need an experienced litigator who know how to present your case correctly in a courtroom.
