A child custody case may be filed in Family Court, or it may be litigated as part of a divorce case in Supreme Court. What should you expect if custody is an issue in your divorce?
The discovery process can be both the most useful and most frustrating part of the divorce process. Discovery allows you to receive any information relevant to the divorce action. In order to have the right to discovery, demands must be timely made. Usually, at your initial court date, the court will set deadlines for discovery. If these deadlines are not met, you may lose your right to make demands or, if you fail to timely respond, you may have certain issues decided against you.
