How does trial work? Pls help

Hi everyone! I am not american so I have no clue how trials work in America.
Do you have like only one hearing where there is the judge that handles the situation and the jury votes and finish?
Cause here we have multiple hearings with the judge where you discuss and then he decides and you can go against that decision to the next level of courts etc.
I need to insert in my story a trail for domestic abuse and I really need some help to make it realistic! Please, please help!

They’re pretty similar to Australia and Canadian ones. Where exactly is “here?”

Sorry I’m italian. I want to know how trial works in america

depends how much evidence there is
a domestic abuse trail can last days or weeks
im not american either but a quick google will prolly tell you if theres usually a jury in those cases or not
