Hi thank you for your message, well such hearings are generally kept as informal as possible so the judge will not be robed or wearing a wig and neither with your ex's lawyer if he has one. There will be the judge, you, your ex and his lawyer. The hearing is designed to find out who the child should live with and any arrangements for contact with the non-resident parent. The overall consideration of the court is what is in the best interest of the child. They will be interested to hear from you and will ask you about the child and the current arrangements for example if the children are currently with you why they should stay in your care. Things like nursery and school and how those arrangements can be kept the same with the children in your care. Also, any concerns you have about contact so for example if your ex has abused you or could be a danger to the children limited supervised contact would be better than unsupervised contact. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
It depends on the judge you get and their ranking as it were that said Sir should be fine.
