Court Dates During a Divorce
For many people the process of getting a divorce can be a very stressful experience. Having to prepare for a court case that is coming up, can sometimes just add more stress to it all. It’s vital to understand how to prepare for a court date and what to expect at trial.
There are so many questions that might be running across your mind like: “What should I be expecting?” “What do I have to do?” “What kind of preparation do I need to focus on?” “How should I dress for court?” These are all questions that an attorney should be answering for you, which is why it is so vital to have a conversation with your attorney, addressing all questions or concerns you may have preceding the court date.
Having answers to these questions can give you peace of mind. It can help open your eyes as best as possible about what to expect and what will happen. If you are uncertain in any way about an upcoming court date, you will need to schedule a meeting, pick up the phone or e-mail your attorney and ask those questions that you’re wondering about.
Court dates can vary by jurisdiction and be of diverse variety. Some court dates are preliminary in nature. They might be called a settlement conference, pre-trial conference, adjourn docket or case management conference.
Court dates like these are wildly dissimilar than cases where evidence is taken by the court. The latter usually represents court dates where a client might have to be ready to testify. In these situations, it is essential to have a detailed conversation with your attorney about what you should expect. Figure out what to ask and prepare a list of questions to ask your divorce attorney.
