Family Law is different. Temporary orders hearing or a final orders hearing is the judicially-imposed time limit. Because of the crowded dockets, the judge or magistrate invariably will impose a 1-hour time limit for temporary orders and a 2 to 3-hour time limit for final orders. The time limit is the total time for the hearing considering both sides. Each side will get ½ of the allotted time.

So, not only does your presentation have to be persuasive, it must efficient and succinct. Many times, in divorce cases, there are multiple issues (ie child custody, duration and amount of alimony, child support, division of marital property, division of debt, retroactive financial issues reserved at temporary orders, etc).  There is a lot to talk about in a limited time.  You must use your time well or the court will cut off your presentation. That often means if you have multiple witnesses, having to choose the best ones to testify. If you have a significant number of documents, you often have to select the best exhibits to present.
