Virginia Beach Divorce Tips : What To Wear In Divorce Court

Posted on May 23, 2012 by Hofheimer Family Law

Fashion is probably the last thing on your mind during the stressful days of your Virginia Beach divorce. While it may seem like an insignificant thing, what you wear in divorce court can make a difference in the outcome of your case.

In a divorce hearing, a judge doesn’t know you as a person; he or she has only the information about the case, and the impression given by you when you walk into divorce court. When you’re at a divorce hearing, it’s best to dress in clean, neat, conservative attire.

You want to project the image of being:

  • competent;
  • intelligent;
  • maternal; and
  • respectable.

Knee-length skirts or dresses are best. You can wear makeup, but in this situation less is more. The same goes for jewelry; this isn’t the time for large hoop earrings or chunky bracelets, especially if they jingle or clang. Clothing-wise, muted or pastel colors are better than blacks or brights. Low-heel shoes or pumps are preferred footwear options.
