When I testify, who will question me?
When you are testifying, you do not need to ask yourself questions and answer them. Instead, you can say what happened in “story” form or the judge may ask you questions. Remember to include information like the time and day that an instance of abuse happened, where it happened, who was there, and what actually happened. After you testify, the respondent, or his/her attorney if s/he is represented, will get a chance to “cross-examine” you to try to discredit things that you said.
