Family Law Court Appearance

If you have ever been to court, you know how scary it can be. You will go before a judge and you will be responsible to understand the law and the codes just as if you were an attorney. That is why so many people feel they were treated unfairly when they go to court without an attorney. If you have never been to court, you are probably terrified about what you will say to the judge, and worse, what the judge will say or ask of you. And you have no idea what to expect. All the preparation in the world cannot adequately prepare you for what it feels like to stand in open court and try to argue your case without knowing the laws, codes and procedures of the courtroom.

What you say to the judge and exactly how you present your case will make all the difference in the world. Judges use legal terms that sound obvious but have a completely different legal meaning than what people commonly understand. You and the judge may be using the same words, but you may end up speaking a different language. And, not understanding the judge and not understanding how the hearing is going can lead to disastrous consequences in your case.

Even if you are representing yourself, it is always a good idea to hire an attorney in a limited scope basis to represent you at the hearing. Our office has over 25 years of combined experience litigating before the court and we can help you present your case to the judge to help you get the best possible outcome.
