Being involved in a legal issue like divorce is not enjoyable in any way, let alone testifying in court. There is no guarantee that you won’t be asked to testify in court in light of matters in your case.
Testifying in court means to bear witness to the matter at hand. And this requires you to be under oath to, tell the truth. If a witness lies during testifying in court, it is considered as a crime, perjury.
But, in any case, being up there and answering questions thrown at you can be terrifying. Your Attorney and your spouse’s attorney ask you questions. You are required to answer these questions put to you truthfully to the best of your knowledge and ability.
This Q&A session can sometimes limit you depending on the types of questions put your way. That is, there can be questions that require only a “yes” or “no” answer. And your response must be just that. These answers can sometimes be misleading without the answer being elaborated. Moreover, the questions can range across a wide range and may even appear to be irrelevant at first.
Yes, it can make you nervous. But your Attorney can prepare you for it. Think of it as a formal Q&A session to make it less terrifying. With your lawyer having prepared you for it, you’ll be good to go once you get up there for real.
