Why exactly does Cheryl Burke want to proceed to trial?
So far, it seemed like Cheryl Burke and Matthew Lawrence amicably agreed to dissolve the marriage. Neither has slammed the other in the press. Even recently, Cheryl just simply admitted that people grow apart sometimes. So why exactly is the trial necessary?
“Cheryl’s attorney filed a request for trial setting because he’s trying to push the other side to move and get things done,” Goldie Schon, a family law attorney from California, told Us Weekly about the latest development. “He’s trying to push it because it’s going to take probably three months to get a trial setting conference on [the] calendar — it’s an appointment to get the court to set a trial six months later. So, they’ll get a request for a trial setting conference probably in August or September to go to the courthouse to sit in front of the judge and get another date for the trial. This is not happening any time soon. They’re trying to get in front of a judge to resolve issues.”
In other words, Schon believes that the trial is happening to speed the process along a little bit. Divorces can often be long, painful procedures. Especially when there are a lot of assets involved.
