If you don’t know what questions the judge must answer (and also the questions that the judge may want answered) to reach a ruling on your case, you are not prepared to testify.
If you don’t know what the winning answers to the questions are, you are not prepared to testify. No, I don’t mean that you need to fabricate “the right” answers, I’m saying you need to know how to honestly answer questions most effectively.
To know what the winning answers to the questions are, you will have to do your homework. You will have to learn and understand at least the basics of how the law(s) and rules that apply/applies to your case function, what factors need to be met to prevail.
If your truthful answers to the questions are not at least mostly genuine winning answers, you have a weak case. Period. There’s no way around it, unless you want to try to lie, deceive, and cheat your way to a win, which is not only illegal and morally wrong, but a risky proposition.
