Westlake Village Private Judging Attorney
Keep Your Family Matters Private
It is no secret that divorce can be among the most stressful and overwhelming
legal decisions that a person makes during a lifetime. Because divorce
is often seen as tumultuous and overbearingly expensive, many people hesitate
to take the necessary steps to begin and complete a divorce.
Fortunately, as society continues to evolve and reform, new innovations
and alternative legal methods have emerged as efficient solutions to many
of the problems that a litigated divorce can bring. Private judging is
one option that many divorcing spouses turn to as a way to keep their
personal affairs private during the divorce process. If you are considering
a private judging as you and your spouse move forward in a divorce, speak

What is a private judging?
Private judging is the process by which a separating couple can elect a
judge to oversee their divorce. Their privately selected judge will assume
many of the same responsibilities and duties that a trial judge would
have, such as reviewing evidence and rendering a final decision based
upon the collective information displayed at the hearing. Whereas a traditional
trial would complete a divorce publicly, a private judging can be held
in discretion according to the separating couple's wishes.
The virtually endless benefits of a private judging include the following:
- The entire divorce process can be expedited.
- Divorcing couples will not have to wait to open a case so they can be heard
on a court docket.
- Divorcing couples will not have to pay their divorce attorneys for the
time spent on waiting for their case to be heard by a public trial judge.
- The parties in a divorce can choose the private judge who will oversee
their case rather than relying on a stranger in the public family court system.
- A private judging allows for collaborative and creative decisions to be
made between the divorcing spouses , rather than through litigation.
