Court Observation Notes
Learning your local court system is the single biggest piece of advice we give to those on the family court battlefield. Each judge is different and how you strategize or present your case should only be decided after familiarizing yourself with your courtroom. Prompts will guide you through important details to pay attention to while doing court watch. Many are nervous about being questioned while in the court viewing area and our suggested response is, “I have an interest in family court and I’m here today as an observer.” You can also take notes while waiting for your case to be called. Print and hand write onto the form or type your notes directly into the PDF after court.
