Arrive at the hearing room or courtroom about 15 minutes before the scheduled time on the date of the hearing. Bring your witnesses with you to the hearing. Be prepared to spend most of the morning or afternoon in court.
Clothing for a court appearance should be neat, clean attire suitable to a business environment. Inappropriate attire includes t-shirts with swear words, depicting violence or sexual acts, promoting drug or alcohol use; halter/tank tops; muscle shirts; undergarments worn as outer garments; shorts; jeans or cut-off jeans; baggy pants which fall below the hips; micro-mini skirts; clothing with holes/patches that are part of the design or construction of the garment; exercise or sportswear; and hats (except those worn for religious purposes). If the Referee/Judge decides that attire is inappropriate for court appearances, the offending person may be asked to leave the court and return in more appropriate attire.
