What to Expect: Child Support Hearings
If you’re required to attend a child support hearing related to your child’s case, we – as your attorneys – will make sure that both you and your case are prepared in advance of your court date. You won’t have to go through this process alone.
If you’ve never been to court before, it’s important to know that it is a professional environment. The ways in which you choose to present yourself will reflect upon you and may impact your case. As a result, it’s important to dress semi-professionally. Don’t wear clothing that is unclean, vulgar, ripped, or would generally be considered inappropriate in an office setting. You’ll also want to avoid vulgar language and to address the judge politely, even if you aren’t a fan of your judge’s approach to their job.
It’s also critically important that you arrive at whatever time you’ve been advised to arrive by our team. For example, even though your hearing may not be scheduled until 10 am, there may be good reasons for you to arrive by 9am. Whatever you do, don’t be late to your hearing if it is at all physically possible to avoid this challenge. Doing so may impact the outcome of your case. If a true emergency arises, contact us immediately so that we understand why you’ll be late and when you’ll be able to arrive.
Depending on your unique situation, you may be asked to speak or we may simply speak on your behalf. We will make sure you’re prepared, per the unique circumstances of your case.
