Things to Bring with You
When you appear in court, you’ll most likely be expected to bring copies of important documents with you. If you have any financial declarations to your name such as child support, alimony or property ownership, you should be able to give proof to the presiding judge. You might also be expected to present tax forms and pay stubs, so make sure you have a copy for yourself, the judge, your legal team and the prosecution team. Any necessary forms can be supplied by the court clerk’s office.

How to Present Yourself
More than anything, you need to remind yourself to stay cool, calm, and collected. Do not be afraid to do your research beforehand, write down anything you want to remember and ask questions whenever you can. The more you educate yourself on your impending court appearance, the better you’ll feel when the day arrives.  

Although you’re probably going to feel frustrated and worried, remember to always be respectful and to listen diligently throughout your trial. Stay engaged and attentive, and show the court that you’re taking the trial seriously.

Have a Reputable Legal Team by Your Side

In the face of the daunting legal system, an experienced and reputable team will help you know your rights and build the strongest case possible. Look into different law firms in your area.
