#1

It’s to late. You must demand a jury trial in your pleadings.

#2

Will the fault found by the judge be used in setting alimony as well?
And more importantly, if mediation fails what effect will it have concerning custody?


#3

If alimony was included as one of the claims in the divorce from bed and board, the court will consider fault in determining alimony.

Once mediation fails in the custody matter, it will be set on for trial before the judge. Then the judge will decide what is in the best interests of the child/children.

Good luck,

I was recently on the recieving end of divorce from bed & board, the testimony was heard only by a judge, after reading your website I discover I had a right to a jury to hear the evidence.
I was not aware of this and I never waived any right for a jury to decide fault.
If that is correct may I demand a jury trial on this matter or is it too late?
What are my options?
