Do we even need to go to court?
As soon as we file some type of response, we notify the opposing counsel, and from that point we will then attempt to see if we can do something by agreement, put temporary orders in place, have temporary injunctions in place that say that neither party will cancel insurances or accounts or transfer moneys. That just is to maintain everything status quo until we can actually divide the community estate between the parties.
Once we do that, we may have an option to attend mediation. Mediation is required on all cases before a final trial is heard before the judge, but most of the times it is very helpful to have the parties mediate as soon as we get started and obtain financial information about the parties and their divorce situation.
