Being Denied Fault Grounds For Divorce

divorce lawyer Kirsten ReneauQuestion:

At the pre-trial divorce hearing, the judge announced that the trial would proceed as a no-fault divorce hearing even though I have evidence of adultery.

Can a judge deny my opportunity to introduce the fault grounds that caused the dissolution of the marriage?


I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Wisconsin divorce laws where I am licensed to practice.

Often, the courts set deadlines during the trial preparation phase. The purpose of this is to “close the valve” on information and evidence. This helps get the case moving along and bring some closure and finality to a divorce trial,

After the deadline has passed, it is up to the judge’s discretion whether to allow additional evidence to be presented at the trial. You may file a motion with the court to request additional time limits or reconsideration of that decision.

Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than divorce tips for men, so please consult with a divorce lawyer in your jurisdiction.
