How do I prepare for a phone hearing?

Please follow these guidelines for phone hearings:

  1. If using a cell phone, make sure the battery is fully charged.
  2. Try to have good, clear reception with no background noise. If the judge cannot hear you, your case may have to be rescheduled.
  3. Have a pen and paper available for note taking.
  4. Have all documents with you during the hearing.
  5. Do not drive during the hearing.
  6. Do not multitask. The judge will expect your full attention.

How long will my hearing last?

The length of your hearing will likely last about an hour. It depends on the type and complexity of your case.
