TOOL OF THE DAY: Declaratory Judgment

CATEGORY: Family Law

If you are at the beginning of your divorce, consider filing a declaratory judgment.

The definition of declaratory judgment is “a judgment that merely decides the rights of parties in a givenĀ transaction, situation, or dispute but does not order any action orĀ award damages.”

You probably guessed what our thinking is here. If you ask for pretrial declaratory judgment regarding the rights that parents are proceeding with then you know where the court’s head is at. This way you will know how much you will need to overcome with this judge.

If you are pro se check with an attorney to find out the details of how to proceed with something like this.
