If even one party is unreasonable then it only prolongs and escalates the conflict in addition to wasting money
My ex is a textbook narcissist out to "win" this process, and her lawyer is a textbook negative advocate. So, high conflict.

At a high level, would you (all) suggest avoiding case and settlement conferences as much as possible? Can/should I push for a trial as early as possible? Or does the process require a long slog before trial becomes an option?

To be clear, I have a good lawyer. Just thinking about my long-term strategy and appreciate input from anyone who's in a similar high-conflict situation.

StillPaying has a little shameless behaviour in the past

Court is set up to help get you resolution as quickly as possible. Learn the process, the purpose of each step, and follow it. Deviating from this only causes further delays.
