Litigation Strategies, Including Expert Selection And Retention

Sometimes, a case cannot be resolved through settlement negotiations or mediation. When a case cannot be resolved through an agreement between the parties, litigation becomes necessary. In other words, sometimes a case will go to trial and the judge must resolve the parties’ dispute. Whether the dispute involves timesharing, child support, alimony, division of assets and liabilities (called equitable distribution), or other family law issues, the attorneys at Nicole L. Goetz, P.L. are prepared to advocate on your behalf at trial.

Oftentimes a dissolution of marriage proceeding involves issues that require the knowledge and experience of an expert in a particular field, such as tax, real estate, or business valuation, to name only a few.  Other professionals commonly retained in a dissolution of marriage case include vocational evaluators, mental health or medical experts, forensic accountants, and investigators. When that happens, we are able to facilitate a relationship between our client and the outside expert by providing recommendations based on our knowledge of the facts and issues in the case, and the background of the expert or experts.  While we cannot guarantee the results of any case, no one can, we will work closely with our client, as well as the retained expert, in order to develop a strategic plan to pursue our client’s goals in the most efficient and effective way possible.

There are numerous ways in which we prepare a case for litigation. At Nicole L. Goetz, P.L., we will explore the best options and involve you in the preparation of your case in order to obtain the appropriate results.
