This trial will determine with which guardian the children are better off. It will be difficult, as I know and am friendly with both parents. Now, I watch a lot of crime tv, so the only thing I know about testifying is that the witness is usually ripped apart with facts or questions about their own past, before they ever get to the case at hand. Should I expect to be questioned the same way in a child custody hearing?
It's not likely and the main thing is to follow my 5 step witness advice I give to everyone.1. Listen carefully to the question. 2. Make sure you understand the question. 3. Answer THAT question. 4. Stop. 5. If you need to explain, say so, but wait for permission from the lawyer or the judge. If you stay calm and are respectful most attorneys and judges will never give you a hard time.
