Using Stipulations in Your Divorce Case

Saturday, July 28th, 2007

?Stipulations, often overlooked as a divorce tool, can be very helpful. They are statements of facts that both parties can agree upon, such as the names of the parties, the date of their marriage, the date of separation, the names and birthdays of their children. I usually include their ages, income and health as well.

Even if the other side won’t sign your stipulations, you can still submit them to the judge as a Statement of Facts at the beginning of the case. It helps the judge get up to speed quickly.

Frankly, it helps me as the lawyer remember things, like the name of my client, when I have hundreds of cases and facts swirling around in my head. And the judge is always asking me for details like the date of marriage or the ages of their children.

Stipulations have sometimes helped settle a case. If you include facts that are in dispute, the other side will sometimes tell you what they will and won’t agree to, and that helps narrow the areas of disagreement.
