If you're in the throes of a Texas family law dispute, you'll be facing a lot of unknowns. That's why you'll want a skilled family law attorney by your side to guide you along every step of the way. One thing, in particular, that you should ask your lawyer about is courtroom decorum. More specifically, what should you wear and how should you act?
When you go in front of a judge, you'll want to dress in appropriate attire. This means that you should only wear pressed, clean clothes that look neat and orderly. Men should wear pants, a collared shirt and a suit. Women should wear a skirt, dress, suit or pants -- but they shouldn't be too tight or revealing. Don't even think about wearing a t-shirt, shorts, sunglasses or hats in a Texas courtroom: they're not allowed. You should also avoid too much makeup, too much jewelry and over-the-top hairstyles.
