How long to get in front of a judge


If my ex and I do not agree on a custody agreement in mediation how long before we get in front of a judge? Are we talking weeks or months?


It depends on the county you are in, but generally it will take a few months to have your case heard before a judge. In the smaller counties you may be able to get on a docket much more quickly than in a larger county, but even in the smaller counties, there may be other cases ahead of you that need to be heard that have been pending for longer.
