I have a divorce trial coming up in a few weeks. It’s only scheduled for one day, so my attorney said that we won’t have time to introduce all of the evidence that I want. I disagree with this and think she should either figure it out, or get a second day of trial. What do I do?
You should definitely speak with your attorney about this. It could be strategic on her part, or, she really may not be able to get a second date from the court (or both!) This time of year is tricky with scheduling because some judges are rotating (i.e. switching to another court) and need to wrap up files before they leave. Additionally, most courts are still operating at least somewhat in what we have been calling “COVID-mode,” so it is not as easy to get a court date. Hopefully your attorney can discuss the trial strategy with you and you can both reach a consensus about what evidence, and what issues, should be presented.
