What Should Women Wear To Divorce Court?

Formal attire should be worn by women attending divorce court. If you're having trouble picking something out, black is a go to color for a dress. Also, do not attend hearings without combing or brushing your hair. By having good hair it gives an impression that you are neat and well groomed.

Why Appearance Is Important In Court

We live in a society where the way you dress will have an affect on how people would look at you. When going out in public everyone must dress appropriately (i.e have clothes on) so it would only make sense if what's “appropriate” is determined by the places you go. Therefore, there is a great need to know how you should dress in different situations.

It is important to make a good impression for the judge and the jury. These are the persons who will rule in your case. The way you appear in court is one of the circumstances that may be taken into consideration when it comes to deciding the issues. If you are unsure of what to do, do not hesitate to discuss this matter with your local lawyer.

What type of clothing should be worn?

If you are called for a hearing, make sure that you choose to wear formal attire with conservative colors. This will affect how the judge will look at you and it may have a great effect in your case. At the same time, it can also give a good impression to the jury and the judge. When it comes to a divorce case, the judge hearing the issues being raised before him or her will consider a lot of factors.

Drawing a blank on clothes to pick, now what?

You can never go wrong with a black dress or a black suit. If you are running out of ideas on what to pick from your wardrobe, then go for a  black outfit. Just make sure that you do not overdress when you attend to a court hearing. As much as possible, avoid pastel colors, as they are quite distracting especially when worn inside a courtroom.

"Holly Mullin is the best thing that ever happened to me. I came to her after leaving an abusive relationship, scared to death. From the moment I met her I knew she was my lawyer. We filed my divorce at my consultation because I felt so confident and safe with her. We reached the end of my divorce when expected and achieved every goal we set. She communicated with me a lot throughout the process and kept me updated. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a family lawyer. In fact, I wouldn’t trust any other lawyer. She is so amazing and by the end of this process the sound of her voice was so comforting I felt like she was friend."
