What Questions Will A Judge Ask Me And How Should I Answer Them?

During the divorce process, it is extremely likely that you will go to Court several times. During those court conferences, it is possible, that a Judge may ask you some questions. The most important thing you need to know is that in Court, you are “under Oath” and that you are to answer questions truthfully.

Most of the time, if a Judge is asking you a question, it is about something that is not in controversy and is about a fact of the case.

Another common question is to get more information about a subject that the Judge is not familiar with.

The following are examples of some of the types of questions a Judge is likely to ask. This is a non-exclusive list, as every divorce is different.

  • What is your job?
  • What are your working hours?
  • Describe the house you live in?
  • Describe the apartment you live in?
  • What car do you drive?
  • How many miles do you have on your car?
  • You told the court that you work with computers, please give me some more information about that?

As you can see, the Judge is not going to ask you a “trick” question or a question that you don’t know the answer to.

As stated above, you are to answer the Court’s questions truthfully. However, you should answer the question and not give any extra or unnecessary information. For example, if the Judge asks you “What is your job”, and you answer “I’m a teacher”, that is sufficient. You should not answer the question like this: “I teach 10th grade Math, mostly algebra, I teach 5 different classes a day and I have one preparation period, one lunch period and one period off, each day.”  While all that information is probably true, it is “too much” information and unnecessary to the Judge’s question.
