What to Wear to Family Court: A Guide for Families

64

It’s no secret that divorce is a painful experience. This is true for both the parents and the children. In fact, no one escapes unscathed by the unraveling of the family unit.

Going to court to decide the child custody situation only adds to the stress. Unfortunately, this is an unavoidable part of the process.

There are many factors that will influence the judge’s decision in your case, thus you need to listen to your lawyer when it comes to factors like what to wear to family court.

This article takes a look at proper courtroom attire. Keep reading to discover crucial insight into how you can make the best impression possible.

Prioritize Looking Neat

The first and perhaps the most important thing you need to remember about dressing for the family court is to look neat. Shower and get a fresh haircut.

While not everyone will have the money to buy new clothes for their appearance before the judge, you should wear clothes like look neat, are free of holes and that show due respect for the court.

Wear Clothes That Fit

Don’t wear loose-fitting clothes or clothing that is too tight. Men should wear a suit if possible, and women should wear a suit or a long skirt. Remember, this isn’t a fashion show, but your appearance will speak volumes about the person you want the court to see.

Avoid Sneakers, T-Shirts or Shorts

Wearing casual clothing is a huge no-no. Leave the sneakers and T-shirts at home. And women should never wear open-toed shoes.

For more advice on how to dress for court, contact a local family law office.

Keep Your Skirt Below the Knees

Women should always dress conservatively for their court appearance. This means wearing a respectful skirt that falls well below the knees.

Be Conservative with Your Makeup

You should also take it easy with your makeup. After all, the court will judge by the way you dress for the child custody hearing. Tone down your makeup so that you look like a good mother.

Tame Your Hair

Both men and women should come to court with your hair styled conservatively and neatly combed. This is not the time for personal expression. Remember, keep everything as simple and neat as possible.

Cover Up any Tattoos

Again, the court is not interested in a parent’s personal expression. Thus you should do whatever is necessary to cover up your tattoos.

For example, if you have tattoos on your arms, wear long sleeves. For tattoos on your neck, wear a collar and do your best to cover the tattoo without looking even more ridiculous.

Keep in mind that the judge in your child custody case will definitely not be impressed by visible tattoos, so don’t give them any additional reason to view you as an unfit parent.

Important Tips On What to Wear to Family Court

You only get one chance to make a first impression, and that first impression could make all the difference in your child custody hearing. Fortunately, these tips on what to wear to family court can help.
