No, unlike in criminal proceedings in Queens, trials in divorces are heard by a judge, and no jury is involved.
This is an important safeguard for your privacy, but can have impacts you may not expect.
For instance, you may think that without a jury, your divorce trial will proceed quickly and the judge can rule right away, but in practice, you’re likely to spend a lot of time waiting in the courtroom for your case to be called, then spend several days on the trial itself.
The judge probably won’t rule for several weeks or even longer.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino make sure our clients are fully prepared for a divorce trial, and that they have the most compelling case possible.
