Tips and Guidelines to Minimize Court Stress
Going to court can be extremely stressful. If you have never dealt with the Ohio criminal courts before – or you have had a negative experience in the past – these tips may help alleviate some of the stress of appearing.
- Arrive early. The last thing you want to do is show up late to court – you may end up with a warrant out for your arrest. Make sure you plan ahead, and give yourself plenty of time to get to court in case there is heavy traffic or some other delay. Arriving at least 30 minutes early will give you plenty of time to park, exit public transportation, and sign in for court.
- Dress more conservatively than you normally would in your everyday life. Though many of us like to express ourselves with our garments, we suggest dressing in a more conservative fashion than you might if you were out and about running errands – e.g. no crop tops, tank tops, short shorts, board shorts, etc. A pair of pants with a sweater or button-up or a dress will suffice in most cases.
- Turn your phone off. Don’t plan to be taking text messages or calls in the courtroom – turn off your phone or tablet before entering the courtroom.
- Leave weapons at home. If you are in possession of any weapons or firearms, you may be asked to relinquish it security reasons. You will not get them back until you are about to leave the courthouse.
