What should I say to the Judge?

What should I say to the Judge?

 

One of the least talked about things in a New York City divorce or child custody case what you should or should not say in a court room.  You are being judged on day one so be sure to be respectful.  Watch how you behave, and be respectful as to what you wear to court.  Dress appropriately. Let your attorney speak for you and do not interrupt the judge.

The Court is very busy and spends an average of three minutes per case or  so, depending on how  serious the issues are,  so save your arguments  for the major issues of your case.  Do not start arguing with the judge, and if you have to, then do so respectfully and save that for  when you have something really important to argue about. Be respectful in the court room, not only to the Judge but to the other professionals in the court house. What you say and do is noticed and matters.

A judge has a tremendous discretion over your divorce or custody case.  There is no jury in a divorce case, so what the judge determines in binding upon you. The Judges at trial will remember the way you behaved in a court of law.  And if you alienate the judge then the judge might assume you are alienating your spouse or your children. But sometimes it is difficult to refrain from doing because emotions are flaring.
