What Should I Expect From My "First" Divorce Court Hearing in Columbus, Ohio?

A: Usually, "first" court hearings are held to schedule dates for future work and hearings, like discovery deadlines, pre-trials and trial dates. It is possible that this "first" hearing could have some legal substance.

Ask your Columbus divorce attorney to describe what will occur so that you can be prepared. Don't panic: understand that you will not have to testify until there is a hearing where testimony is taken. This is not typically done at the "first" hearing. Your attorney will probably do most of the talking.

Review directions with your Columbus divorce attorney, so you are comfortable knowing where you need to be. Make note of important room number, building and floor. Double check with your lawyer about where to meet and the correct time of the hearing. Remember to dress appropriately for all of your hearings.
