Is it better to consolidate order of protection, violation, child custody and divorce in supreme court?

Q: My soon to be ex wife filed frivolous order of protection in October 2014 in family court. Then she filed for child support, child custody and recently she filed for violation of order of protection. All this because she was very angry when I met with a car accident in Aug 2014 while driving her old 2004 Toyota car and totaled it. She was asking me to pay her $ 20,000 for her old car but because of reckless driving case on me I had to engage a good lawyer and all charges against me were later on dismissed. She told me that she will not let me survive if I do not pay her the money and then filed so many cases against me and threw me out of her apartment for which I was paying the rent. She also filed a civil case on me in Supreme court for $ 20,000 for her old car.

I filed for child custody in Feb 2015 in family court and divorce in April 2015 in supreme court. She has gone pro se in divorce case and is trying to delay divorce and for rest of the cases in family court she has a lawyer and they asking me to withdraw child custody and they will withdraw OOP and violation cases to settle.

Is it better for me to consolidate all cases in Supreme Court?

A: David's Answer: It's usually better to move to consolidate all related matters in the pending divorce case. That said, if there's either trial dates set in Family Court - or the case is near trial-ready - the Supreme Court may decline to consolidate.
