Court Tip: One of the worst things you can do is to ignore your ticket. Failure to Answer a ticket can result in a suspension of a driver's privilege to drive. If a driver is caught driving with a suspended license a police officer may arrest the driver and charge them in a criminal act.
Lay of the Land: Immediately prior to entering the court, you will be asked to walk through a magnetometer and asked to turn off all electronic devices. The court is secured by special court attendants. These officers help facilitate the court process and one of their key function is to note attendees who arrive to court. Your failure to check in with one of the officers may result in your case not being called.
Dress Code: Although there is no official dress code, we highly recommend all litigants come to court in formal attire. Judges often frown upon those who come to court in shorts, open-toed sandals or other similar items.
Things to Bring: You should bring your court notice advising you to appear in court. If you are displaced, showing the court personnel your letter may help in directing you where to go and what to do.Getting the Legal Advantage
