Default Re: Restraining order hearing: Is it helpful to bring a witness?

I wish to inform you that a Defendant may present witness in his support. In this regard the Defendant will inform court about the statement of persons which Defendant intend to give in its support. Defendant may name the witnesses which he wants to be presented as a witness and those person may appear in court. Witness may also be tendered through affidavit.

The defendant has the opportunity to tell his side of the story, under oath, and no one can testify for him. At a hearing one is sworn to tell the truth, what he or she knows firsthand -- not what other people tell them. That is "hearsay" and not allowed.

If one has witnesses that can testify about they saw or heard with their own eyes and ears that support your case, then by all means you have the opportunity to bring them in and have them heard.

Your testimony is evidence. Your witnesses' testimony is evidence. The more evidence you have in support of your side of the story, the more likely you will prevail.
