Court appearances can be quite frightening, especially when custody of your child or the ownership of certain high worth assets or property are on the line. That is why we work with you before your court experience to synthesize all information and be prepared to put your best foot forward in a short amount of time.
Being prepared for court includes:
Make sure you eat something before court. There is no way to predict the amount of time you will be in court. While we do our best to expedite the process, there is a chance you may be there for most of the day. Please plan accordingly.
Please do not Google questions you may have prior to the court appearance. Often time one person's facts and circumstances are very different than yours and you will be armed with the wrong information. Our team at HD Family Law Group is always more than happy and willing to answer any and all questions you may have and discuss strategy with you to prepare you for your court appearances.
Lastly, please do not bring a group of people, especially if you are aware of any animosity between the other party and the individual accompanying you. We recommend either one friend or family member who is calm, presentable, supportive and non-confrontational.
Court is a stressful place and you do not need someone there that makes it even more difficult on you. We will be there for you every step of the way. We prepare you with the knowledge and confidence you need to get through any court appearance and any situation that may come up during your family court or divorce procedure.
