So many people going through a divorce just want a chance to tell their side of the story to a judge because they believe, if the judge could hear their side of the story, s/he would understand and rule on their behalf. But a litigated divorce isn't exactly like sitting down with the judge and telling your side of the story. A litigated divorce is an adversarial process of positional bargaining with lawyers on both sides arguing to get their client what they want and fighting to keep their opponent from getting what they want.
In this video taken from a longer interview with Judge Alice Blackwell, we talk about how trying to fit a divorce into the traditional litigation model costs the couple precious energy and resources that can last well beyond the divorce decree and prevents the family from being able to reorganize in the most optimal way.
