What is the difference between a trial and other court proceedings? Our trial is set for sept 11-13. Why is it so long?

Think of it this way: when a poison is charged with a crime they have a trial. Prosecution puts on their case, defense puts on theirs and a judge or jury gives a verdict. Before a trial, there are can be pre-trial hearings on motions such as what evidence can be allowed at trial. Those are normally short because it's just one issue and not the whole case and guilt is not determined. With a civil trial it's the same except you replace the prosecuter with the moving party and generally there is no jury. There can be in other civil proceedings, but when it's about the best interest of a child, that is usually left to a judge. It's so long because lawyers like to talk.

Trials are argued in front of a judge and lots of evidence is presented. They're usually placed so far out to give the opposing sides a chance to work out a settlement before the trial.
