I thought military personnel werent supposed to go to court in their uniforms?

My ex went to our coustody hearing in his AF uniform. I am taking him back to court and I am worried that he will do it again.
Last time he did it in a court where I heard froma lawyer that the judge favored military.
It isnt fair that he uses that to try to win a case in a civilian court.

Are they allowed to wear those to court? I thought it was against the regulations?
I am just asking because I could had swore I learned about it even in ROTC

  • I don't see anything wrong with it.
    ...but maybe i'm biased because my DH is military and we'll be going to court soon?

    I don't know for sure if it's against any military regulations though, if he requested time off work to be there, then i think it would be acceptable. BUT I believe that they aren't allowed to wear their uniforms when on their own time. So, if he is on leave or it's not during his "duty hours" then it would be against regulations.

  • He is reserve.
    He still wore it when he found out that the judge favored military
    That is just wrong to wear it to court.
    That DOES NOT give a fair hearing

  • Honestly, It depends on the uniform and whether or not he was on duty prior to the hearing. It is also against regulation to wear the uniform to court for personal gain or for a civilian case. Speak with his chain of command if you can about it.

  • . It is also against regulation to wear the uniform to court for personal gain or for a civilian case

    That is what he did and what I am scared of again
    We were in civilian court at the city court house and he only wore it so he would get a better chance of winning.

  • Now I do have to ask, was it his dress uniforms or his BDU's? Military members aren't supposed to wear their BDU's in public at all.
