When you find the appropriate courthouse, do call them and verify that it’s the appropriate place. You may live in District 10 but you may need to appear for a small claims case in District 6, which can be confusing if you are not routinely working in the court system. Do save yourself plenty of time and energy by printing all your forms from the website and paying fees or fines online so that you do not have to worry about taking time off work and waiting in a line!

Court Tips:

Before you step into the courthouse, here are a few tips we want you to consider to make you’re the experience the best it can possibly be.

  1. Always dress to impress. You don’t have to spend much but do dress in an outfit that you would wear to a business interview. It doesn’t matter if it’s traffic court or a simple probate hearing, if you are before the judge and in appropriate attire, you will be taken more seriously.
  2. Don’t use the court for spite or revenge. It will back fire and you could be faced with a lawsuit against you for malicious behavior. We understand you are upset but the court is not designed to be used for you to get back at someone. Only go to court when your case has merit.
  3. If you can opt for mediation, take it! Mediation is often a better situation for both parties than litigation (having a judge make a decision). More courts are incorporating mediation for everything that they can in order to make better use of the judge’s time. If you don’t take mediation, you could wind up losing everything if a judge makes a decision not in your favor. Court hearings are also very stressful, mediation is a more relaxed setting and allows everyone to get to the heart of the matter.
  4. If you cannot afford legal representation, try to see if you can get legal aid to help you. Not all cases require a lawyer, such as small claims, but if you are in a legal battle with someone who does have a lawyer, you will need someone in your corner.
  5. Relax! If you have to go before a judge, do your best to relax. If you are stressed out, it will reflect in your speech and can cause you to forget key things you want to say. If you are representing yourself, write down key points you know that are important to make so you won’t forget. If you trip over your words; take a moment to stop, take a breath, smile, and then continue.
  6. Take law workshops when they are available. More court systems are offering law workshops due to the rising number of people who cannot afford legal representation. You can learn how to write a will, how to assign someone the power of attorney, or simply how to file for a divorce. These workshops are super helpful and can teach you much more than if you try to do it all on your own.
  7. Ask before you take the plunge. Before you file for a lawsuit, ask a third party for their opinion. You can ask close friends who have been in your situation before. If your court system offers law advisors, talk to them. Do a web search if need be. A lawsuit is not only time consuming, it’s emotionally draining too. Move forward if you have enough support and even people willing to testify or come to court with you. You don’t have to do it alone!
