Court date

Unfortunately, depending on the count you live in, it can often take an exceedingly long time to get a hearing. If you do not believe your lawyer is doing everything he or she can, you should get a second opinion from another attorney.

What is the process to get a court date? My divorce was done over a year ago and we are still waiting for a court date to decide property and custody. My lawyer keeps saying that he can never get the case scheduled and it gets pushed back. What options if any do I have to get everything resolved once and for all besides agreeing to an out of court settlement that would be like signing my life away to the X?
