Child support hearing Bella_Chelle 17 kids; Pennsylvania 5415 posts

I finally filed for child support. The hearing is in less than 2 hours and I am so nervous. I haven't seen her father since I was 5 weeks pregnant and she is now 15 months old. We have been through so many fights and threats. Ugh I don't know why this is making me so damn nervous right now. I have never been to a hearing. What is something appropriate to wear? I was going to wear black pants, a black shirt, and heels. Does that sound alright?

I wouldn't wear high heels, but a bit of a heel is fine. Just look professional, like you would at a job interview.



Good luck!

That outfit sounds fine. The first hearing I ever went to was last year, and I wore black pants, a nice shirt(it was a satin red and black plaid....but not lumberjack plaid), and heels.

Thanks! I ended up wearing it. I was the only one dressed up lol. People came in street clothes. I felt sexy though hahaha. He didn't show up, cut his phone service off, lied about where he was staying, and is running away. I have such a winner.

Oy. SMH. Sorry mama.



I've notice the street clothes in court thing a lot too. I mean, I wear my everyday clothes, but the NICER end of my everyday clothes. I see women in there in tank tops, no bra, knit shorts, looking like they just rolled out of bed... Guys in stained up jeans and wife beater t-shirts... "Gangstas" in sagging jeans and all blinged out, wearing their CAP in the courtroom... Oh. And the one woman in a little... I guess you would call it a romper? Halter top attached to booty shorts, stripper heels, and it was all FLESH TONED. It was hard to tell she wasn't naked when I saw her out of the corner of my eye. *shudder*

Lol I saw all of that. I saw a woman with a man's button up shirt on, other women in sweatpants. I was like damn did I over dress hahaha. And it's ok. I felt relieved because I thought if I saw him I might beat his face in. I would hope I wouldn't but the shit he has done it's hard to say.
