hi fellow group members,
context : not by choice but facing a matrimony dispute (DV) - Maintenance. Have had a few hearings already. I have an advocate but sobre and soft spoken whereas the other side is brash and cunning (perfect for girl)!
I attend the hearing sometimes but isn't going the way i would expect. the judge hears only for a few minutes and the idea of both side lawyers is to do the formality. bow down , show cheeks and run repeat mode of "my lord". substance is nill - not being cynical but that's fact how Indian courts (read male slaugheter houses are run).
at times i have attempted to stear the discussions but to no avail as that's not their priority.
judges are least bothered and lawyers have their selfish interest. Changing lawyer hasn't helped yet.
May i ask fellow GUYS members on some tips to have a proper body language and vocabulary to use? don't advice on the lines on "in rome be like romans" cause that's absurd""
i also get that masssaging the ego of judges is utmost priority so yes let's add on these lines if any tips really appreciate....
