closing statement

At the end of your trial, you get a chance to briefly tell the judge why you should get the court order you're asking for. This is called a closing statement. Your closing statement should be based on: 

  • what you or other witnesses said
  • the documents used as evidence
  • family law rules and laws

You cannot talk about any new information that wasn’t used as evidence in the trial.
