the 38 year old dancing with the stars Pro’s attorney filed a motion on Thursday, May 26, to request a trial for the family law case. According to court documents, obtained by U.Sboth legal teams have signed the application.

According to the statutory filing, a trial lasts approximately three days and cannot be scheduled as a short cause matter unless all parties agree to an estimated trial length of 5 hours, one day, or less. A case would discuss dissolution of marriage, spousal support, property division, attorney fees, and other legal costs.

“Cheryl’s attorney filed a lawsuit request because she is trying to pressure the other party to move and get things done.” Goldie Schöna California family law attorney told him exclusively U.S of what the new motion could mean for Burke and the 42-year-old actor’s divorce. “He’s trying to push it because it’s probably going to take three months to get a test setting conference on [the] calendar: is an appointment for the court to set a trial six months later. So they will get a request for a trial setting conference probably in August or September to go to court to sit in front of the judge and get another trial date. This is not happening in the short term. They are trying to get in front of a judge to solve the problems.”

Schon noted that the California native’s attorney is trying to “keep things moving” by filing the application nearly three months after the case began.

“Certainly, it seems that she wants to speed up the process and wants to do this. She just wants to put this in the rear view mirror and she doesn’t want to deal with any of these issues and call it a day like it never happened.” U.S. “Filing a trial setup so early in the game tells me she just wants to get this done, faster than family court possibly allows.”

Thank you all for all the kind words and support you have given me.”

Burke, who married the boy meets world alumna in May 2019, she has since remained candid about moving on, even admitting that their breakup has tested her “100 percent” sobriety.

“It’s not that I miss the act of drinking. I do not. I never liked the taste of it. It was just for the effect,” the host of the “Burke in the Game” podcast said exclusively. U.S earlier this month. “Absolutely, I’ve thought about it, especially [when] I’m home alone.”

He continued: “I have lived in this house for 15 years and have had many memories, as you can imagine. It’s a new, quiet in my life. And there are times when I love it. [Then] there are times when I’m really aware of that and I look at my thoughts and I’m like, ‘Wow, peace is quiet.’ I’ve definitely put a lot of new energy into trying to make this like my Zen.”

“So far I see some cooperation [from Matthew]Schon noted. “I don’t see the reveal of him yet; it is a requirement of the court. He hasn’t done it yet. It’s not completely outrageous as this is still a new case.”

She added: “It’s premature. This is just someone trying to [press] the fast-forward button, faster than the court is likely to allow. You have to give both sides a chance to be heard, you can’t try to rush that. Every person has the right to due process. … They will probably get a date in 2 or 3 months, but at that point I think things will move a little bit more and I don’t think this case is ever going to go to trial. This is not a three-day trial, as stated. There isn’t enough meat for that.”
