How to prepare for court
Bring your hearing letter and case number to court, as well as any essential documentation and something to eat and drink. Consult your lawyer if you are unclear what to bring.
Plan to meet with your partner at the hearing in order to stay composed and cool. Apart from that, going to court may be unpleasant, embarrassing, or intimidating for you—but our experienced family law lawyers Leamington spa can help you along the way.
You are free to wear anything you choose; however it is encouraged that you dress correctly. Only for religious reasons may you wear something on your head.
Getting to the court
Prepare a strategy for arriving to the court before the big day. Come at least 30 minutes before your scheduled hearing. Depending on the sequence of the cases, you may have to wait a bit longer.
You will be checked in the same way that you would at an airport when you arrive to court. This is because some goods, such as weapons and alcohol, are not authorised in the courtroom. After you depart, your items will be returned to you.
Throughout the hearing
Put your phone to silent mode and avoid shooting photos or videos. When a member of the staff says, "everyone stand," it implies the judge/magistrate is about to enter the room. When it comes to your turn to speak, you will be advised.
