When you go to family court, you will be focused on thinking about your case. Good manners may be the last thing on your mind.

However, your case will move along more smoothly and you may feel more comfortable while you are at court if you follow a few informal courthouse rules of etiquette.

These include how to dress, how to present yourself, what to bring, who to bring and who not to bring.
