What Does the Court Consider Evidence?

en español>

Evidence is information you may present in court to prove your case. It can be in two main forms:

1.  People: witness testimony
 

  • You 
  • Other people who have direct and relevant information about the case 
  • People who keep records 
  • Experts

2.  Things: exhibits 

  • Photographs 
  • Records: police, medical, bills, appraisals, school records, etc. 
  • Other documents or things


In either case, the judge will want to know: Why is this witness or exhibit helpful in deciding your case?
