The overwhelming majority of divorces settle prior to trial. In fact, the courtroom is often the least appropriate forum in which to publicly air the sensitive personal issues that are involved in any divorce. In rare cases, however, a judge is called upon to determine the issues that cannot be resolved through negotiation between the parties and their attorneys. In Michigan, divorce trials are conducted without a jury. A Family Court judge will decide the issues in your case if it goes to a trial.
