Resolving Disputes through Litigation

By definition, litigation is the process in which legal action is taken to resolve a dispute. Though it is often simpler to resolve a family matter without resorting to litigation, sometimes litigation is the only way to find a solution. Our family lawyers in Folsom have extensive trial experience to put to work for you. We can walk you through every step of the process and ensure that your rights and interests are protected.

Contact the Law Office of Tiffany L. Andrews, P.C. today if you need representation for family law litigation. Call (916) 794-4576.

The Litigation Process

Typically, someone will file a summons and petition and, at times, additional moving papers in court seeking some form of relief. Then, the other side will respond. Usually, once the legal case begins, there is an exchanging of information either informally or formally. This is otherwise known as the discovery period.

After discovery is completed, most courts require the parties to attend a settlement conference to determine if the case may be resolved before trial. If the parties are unable to reach a settlement, the litigation continues to a trial.

Near or on the day of trial, one or both parties often make settlement offers, in the hope of avoiding court proceedings (which are often costly and protracted). Litigation ends if a settlement is reached. However, if not, a trial will commence. In family law and juvenile dependency proceedings, the trials are conducted by a judge – not a jury.

During a trial, both parties present relevant and admissible evidence that will help to prove the truth of their positions. If the moving petitioner makes a convincing case, the respondent may seek to settle the case immediately. On the other hand, if the petitioner presents a weak case, the respondent may ask the court to dismiss the case. If the trial proceeds to a conclusion, the judge must decide which party prevails. Once the Court makes a final decision, the losing party has the right to file a timely appeal.

  • “Excellent Process and Assistance”
    I'd like to thank Tiffany for her advice. I've been divorced for over a year and am still trying to collect on the settlement agreement. I had a question about the legal interest and if it's collectible and she said definitely! as long as the judgment doesn't preclude it. She was extremely helpful - also offering other remedies to assist in the collection of the funds. I would definitely call her again if I need more help.

  • “Excellent Attorney!”
    Tiffany and her office have been Great. I am going through a difficult divorce. So far she has been there for me when I have concerns. In court, she has brought her A+ game. She is very detailed. Tiffany has been able to get full standard on alimony, which is what I wanted. And lawyer fees. For the first time in a long time, I am hopeful of a positive outcome.

  • “Very Professional and Devoted Attorney”
    My case was very unique in the way I had a paralegal and 1 other attorney represent me prior to meeting Tiffany Andrews. In the entire 4 years, I have been dealing with divorce/custody I made more headway in a matter of months after hiring her to represent me. She was very caring and very professional. She made each court hearing a very calm controlled environment for me. She heard what I to say and made a world of difference in my life as well as my children.

  • “I would highly recommend her!”
    Tiffany Andrews is an excellent lawyer. I found her to be efficient, knowledgeable, and honest. Going through the legal system is stressful and having a competent attorney is essential. She is very fast at explaining things, but thorough and excellent with her explanations. I would highly recommend her.

  • “Strongly Recommend! Goes above & beyond to help in the most difficult time!”
    I was referred to Tiffany Andrews by another attorney who was dismissed from my case due to a conflict of interest, I was not confident in handling the case on my own. I contacted her office for advice on possibly representing myself. I first spoke to her staff, Sara & she already knew about my situation so she scheduled me with Andrews. I met with Andrews for a consultation and was 100% certain that I wanted her to represent me after our visit. I noticed that she was very knowledgeable and was already informed about my case from the previous attorney, So immediately I signed & started a retainer. She immediately got started, then she gave me our game plan & was very informative on anything that I had to do to make things run smoothly, I was very impressed with how fast her & her staff took action. She has brought up other suggestions that are in the best interest of my case. I feel that Tiffany Andrews & her staff (Sara) go above & beyond & are very compassionate about my case & the safety of my children. I 100% recommend Tiffany Andrews & her amazing team to anyone who is dealing with Custody or Restraining Order!
