Arizona Divorce Lawyer Represents Clients at Scottsdale Permanent Orders Hearings

Permanent orders hearings refer to court proceedings that typically occur when the parties of a divorce cannot come to an agreement regarding one or more issues of their divorce case. Also commonly referred to as divorce trials, they are important to prepare for, since they can increase the cost of divorces and are intended to result in a final resolution to disputed divorce cases.

Permanent Orders Hearings in Scottsdale: Important Info to Know

The following is just some of the more important information you may want to know about permanent orders hearings for Arizona divorce cases:

  • When they occur – Whenever the partners in a divorce case are not able to resolve disputed issues of their divorce (like, for instance, issues regarding custody or payment obligations), permanent orders hearings usually take place. They may also occur when there is a misrepresentation of the marital property and/or when there may be a significant discrepancy between the bargaining positions of each party in the divorce.
  • What happens during permanent orders hearings in Scottsdale – During these proceedings, each party in the divorce usually presents his or her case, which can involve the presentation of evidence, documentation and/or witness testimony (including possibly expert witness testimony). When both sides have finished presenting their cases, it will be up to the presiding judge to rule on the disputed issues.
  • How long hearings last – While the duration of Scottsdale permanent orders hearings will vary from case to case, in general, these hearings can last anywhere from 2 hours to days, weeks, or longer. The timeframe varies depending on the specific disputes and issues in a divorce case.
  • The impact of a permanent orders hearing – While this proceeding is meant to resolve the issues of a disputed divorce, there can be other impacts of these hearings. In particular, permanent orders hearings can increase the costs of divorce and may result in outcomes that are less favorable for divorcing partners, as these people will not have a direct hand in choosing the outcome of their case. Consequently, it can be a good idea to first consider other dispute resolution options for divorce (like mediation, for instance).
