What is a status hearing?
What is it and should I go even though I have an attorney? (CO)
Your attorney should tell you whether or not you need to attend the Status Hearing. Someone should probably attend and although hearings are usually informal settings, the judge will still need to know your position on the divorce up to that point. This is something your lawyer can usually take care of without your presence.
The importance of finding the right divorce lawyer cannot be overstated. If the other party in your divorce has the representation of a lawyer, you will probably need one too. Going to court without a good divorce lawyer can be a disastrous mistake that could affect your quality of life for many years to come. You need an experienced divorce lawyer on your side to help you navigate the legal technicalities and get through the paperwork as smoothly as possible. – The Divorce.com Team
