Presenting divorce case to Judge


Dear lovebug:

Generally the judge will ask you the date of marriage, the date of separation, how many children were born, etc. The judge will also ask if you have your judgment ready (you should bring 3 copies). I hope that helps.

Divorce papers have been filed and our court date has been set for next Tuesday. I have to present my divorce case to the judge. I am not sure what I am suppose to say or how I am suppose to present my case. Do you have any advice or insight on what need to be said or done during my case? Also, does my soon to be x have to be in court with me on that day? It was my understanding that he doesn’t have to be there. I just want to have all my ducks in a row when I get there and know what to say and do. Thanks in advance for your insight.
