Legal Answers
Q. During covid times, going through a custody hearing, how do I speak for myself, bring a witness or present documents?
A: in most Maine courts during covid hearings are conducted via the zoom video conferencing platform. Preliminary motions and conferences are being done by telephone conferences. At some point your case will have a pretrial conference and you will tell the judge or magistrate how many witnesses you want to call and how long the hearing will take. You really should consult with a family law attorney and hopefully hire one for the hearing.
Q. Can children testify in a custody hearing in state of Maine?
A: yes they can but judges dont like to have them testify, if they will testify often the judge will ask the parents if the kids can talk to the judge without the parents present, it takes both parties to agree to that otherwise the kids get on the witness stand and both parties hear what they have to say. Young children are especially not a favorite of judges to have testify.
Q. How do I prove the other parent's home is unfit for our children? The judge is taking his word about problems being fixe
A: What you really need here is for the court to appoint a guardian ad litem who can go visit both homes and speak with the kids and report back to the court. These usually cost money but sometimes the court can find someone to do it for nothing if you both cannot afford one. it is pretty impossible to prove the conditions of the other house unless you see them for yourself and testify as to what you see. Of course then it becomes your word vs his word and that is difficult. you need an unbiased person to see his house and testify.
