Is written or oral argument better ?

Hello experts,

I am running my divorce case in person at Bandra Family court. I already had cross-examination (both sides)... Now, my final argument would be held in the next date.. Her advocate has filed written argument and i am given a choice to either argue orally or in writing.. So, what would you suggest ?

Also i would like to ask, if i argue orally, then would the judge give his judgement on the same day ? I mean, what if he does not find time to give judgement on the same day then would he remember all what i have argued orally ?

Thanks in advance !!!

Always better to give a wriiten argument as you are not a lawyer and may forget to mention certain facts at the spur of the moment during the oral arguments. Also, you can apply your mind more effectively and make your written statement more meaningful & to the point.

written arguement is always better, judgement can not be pronounce same day.

written or oral arguments not all the points will be written by judge and only main points will be taken which is important and evidence with

in written means judge has time and check when ever he prefers to give judgement and in oral means judge has to note the main points and the typist will type the on going arguments of your with point wise
