My question involves restraining orders in the State of: West Virginia
I'm going pro se through a divorce, have a hearing this week on a bogus (yep, it's really bogus) DV petition, and would like to ask some practical questions about evidence.
I feel good about the rules of evidence, foundations, and whatnot. What I couldn't find were simple answers. All I'm looking for here are simple, straightforward practical answers. I understand the rules of evidence are complicated and am not asking for help in that regard. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.
Can evidence be entered in WV during cross exam? [All of my evidence is documents]
How is evidence entered during testimony as one's own witness? That is from the stand or following testimony?
May her version of events filed with the DV petition be entered as evidence?
May I read directly from that version of events during x-exam? During presentation of my evidence?
How would a visual aid exhibit (like a time line) be intro'ed?
If that exhibit were a whiteboard, could I annotate it during cross? During presentation?
Again, I'm asking in principle and understand that her attorney might be able to confound anything I try to do, but I need the starting points. Thank you.
