When you are attending an evidentiary hearing or a temporary child custody hearing, for example, the judge will follow a certain process. So it is very important to know what happens at a child custody hearing and the custody procedures.

1. Who is the judge going to call to testify first?

Normally the judge will allow the person who filed the action that is pending will get to present their case first. This person is considered the plaintiff or petitioner. So for example, if you are seeking modification of a child custody order or parenting time, the judge will expect you to make your opening statement first. If you are the respondent then you will make your statement second.

2. Witnesses
After opening the plaintiff present case in chief which means they have to call their witnesses to testify on their behalf including themselves if they are representing themselves in court.

It is very important to think about the order you call your witnesses and keep in mind how much time you have as in custody cases you will have limited time and they will not go on for days on end. So it is best to do your homework and present your best witnesses.

You should prepare your witnesses and go over the important points that are relevant to your case. You should also practice a great deal with your witnesses. So, if you are the plaintiff and you are calling yourself as the first witness then you will talk about the important points of your case and what in dispute and what you are trying to modify.
