Preparing for a Day in Family Court
When it is your case and your family, no day in Family Court is without stress. Going to court prepared will help. Generally speaking, you will likely need several documents with you while in court. If you prepare them in advance your day in court will go much easier and be far less stressful.
Financial AffidavitsIf you have any financial disputes that are being heard by the court you will likely need a current (within the last 30 days) financial affidavit completed before the court will hear your case.
Child Support Guidelines WorksheetIf you are going to court about child support then you should prepare a child support worksheet in advance. Family relations will run it for you. But, they may not have the time to look into it with the detail you will if you do it in advance.
Affidavit Concerning ChildrenIf your case involves minor children the court will also need an affidavit concerning children completed to verify that the court you are in front of actually has jurisdiction to hear your case.
