Dress Appropriately

Dress appropriately to your hearing; professional business attire is recommended.  No shorts, tattered clothing, revealing blouses, shirts with inappropriate images or wording, flip flops, hats, or baggy pants.

Arriving at the Courthouse

Arrive early to your hearing, with prepared exhibits.  This way you will be able to find parking, pass through security, locate the courtroom, get last minute questions answered, and collect your thoughts.  Check in at the window of the clerk prior to going to the courtroom.


Security procedures vary, but expect to travel through metal detectors and to have your bags inspected.

Children in the Courtroom

If you have children, either arrange for childcare or contact the courthouse to learn what the policies of the judge on children in the courtroom are, they tend to vary.
