Most family law cases do not require an extensive amount of testimony. However, sometimes the issues in a family law case, such as a divorce, just cannot be resolved, despite the efforts of the lawyers and the parties. When that happens, the parties go to court, offer evidence, both in the form of testimony and exhibits, and a judge decides the issues. This can include some or all of the following:
- Division of assets
- Division of debts
- Child custody
- Child support
It would be a mistake to presume that since you know all the important facts, you will testify brilliantly. Testimony is unlike anything most people have ever done, and there are some tips that can ensure you will testify better than if you don’t follow these simple rules.
