Know about the verdict of the case
In majority of the cases, the convicted party knows about the verdict of the judge or jury. Not to mention that they are clearly aware that the odds are not in the favour and the decision will be announced against them but they have to wait to know the extent of verdict. Keep in mind that there is often a range for the penalties and sentences depending upon the extent of crime. It is of utmost importance that you must have a clear idea of the judge’s verdict, so you must know it and start preparing for it.
After you have realised that the decision will not be in your favour, you must start making arrangements for it. Your attorney will have a clear idea about what will be the judge’s decision, so you must ask him to be open with you and tell you everything. He will be able to give you a pretty good picture of the penalties or legal costs, if it applies to your case and you should ask him to arrange a meeting with other party.
File a request in court
If you are financially unstable and you would not be able to repay the legal costs as ordered by the court. You must file a request with your attorney, requesting the court to allow you to borrow the legal costs for a particular time. This might end up in a relatively higher cost that you would have to pay in future. You can also ask the other party to spare you some time in this regard whereas you can also borrow money from a person or financial institution so that you could solve the matter.
