This week, I have to testify on behalf of my brother-in-law concerning custody of his 4 year old daughter (my niece).
There are several witnesses on either side and the trial is expected to take awhile.
My brother in law is seeking full custody and there is a guardian ad litem involved.
I can’t go into detail, of course, because there is no way of knowing just who’s reading the SDMB right now, but I was just wondering if any Dopers out there have been through something similar and can tell me what to expect in the courtroom?
I’m pretty nervous and worried about the whole thing. The safety and well-being of my neice is riding on the outcome of this trial.
