The discovery process is the exchange of documents and information of divorcing spouses related to their respective economic, financial, and personal situations -- including the extent of their property ownership, debt, and income. This exchange allows an arbitrator to decide how to fairly divide up property and deal with divorce-related issues such as child support and spousal support.
He went on to say, "Now the parties must come up with more money to pay the attorneys to continue to communicate to try to settle on the clients behalf. If the attorneys are unable to negotiate a resolution the parties will have to return to mediation prior to seeing a judge for trial which costs them additional mediation and trial fees."
His final statements were, "You as the parties are the boss and you are hiring the employee (the attorney) to work for you. When you are asked to produce discovery, follow up and make sure your attorney is delivering your discovery to the other side."
