Plan on arriving and starting to find a place to park your car at least one hour early. If you are parking your car one hour prior to your scheduled hearing time, you will be on time for your hearing. Arriving early will give you time to find a place to park. It will also give you time to go through security after you enter the building. Security requires you to have a valid I.D. and go through a metal detector. Do not bring any weapons, knives (even pocket knives), explosives, or flammable objects to the hearing. You do not even need to bring your cellphone. All you really need is a valid I.D. and a copy of your hearing notice, which shows the time and place of your hearing.
WHAT DO I WEAR TO THE LAS VEGAS HEARING OFFICE?
It is important to wear a nice outfit for the Las Vegas Hearing Office (OHO). This does not mean you need to wear a suit and tie or a dress. However, you should wear a long-sleeved blouse or shirt and a pair of long pants with no holes in them. You want to show the Judge, with your choice of clothing, that this is an important event for you. However, you do not want to distract the Judge with your tattoos, piercings, jewelry, or see-through clothing. You want the Judge to listen to you, not wonder about what you are wearing. First impressions are important in court. So, choose your clothes according to the impression you want the judge to have of you.
Likewise, it is important to make a conservative hair choice. If you have long hair, pull it back in a ponytail. If you have a beard or mustache, trim it or shave it off. You want the Judge to listen to what you have to say, not be distracted by your clothing, hair, tattoos, or jewelry. You want the Judge’s first impression of you to be positive and not distract from your testimony.
IS THERE FREE PARKING AT THE HEARING OFFICE OR NEARBY?
There is NO FREE PARKING at or near the Foley Federal Building. There are some pay parking lots near the Federal Building. Additionally, the closest casino is the D Las Vegas, where you can leave your car with the valet and walk to the hearing. You could then retrieve your car for the price of a tip.
Parking can often be difficult around the downtown Federal Building and you want to have time to go through security and be at hearing on time. Therefore, bring cash, a credit card, or plan extra time to find a free parking space. You may want to take a taxi, Uber, or Lyft so that you don’t have to deal with parking. You may also want to take the bus or have a friend drop you off at the Federal Building.
DO NOT BRING AN EXPIRED I.D. TO THE HEARING OFFICE.
YOUR OFFICIAL IDENTIFICATION, WITH YOUR PHOTO ON IT, MUST BE VALID
You must have a valid ID, which means not expired, to get into the building. In order to get through security, you will need to bring a valid ID card with your photograph on it. For example, bring a valid driver’s license, passport, or state ID. Even if you do not have an I.D., you must go get one. Sometimes it takes weeks to get an I.D., so please plan in advance. Go to your local driver’s license office and they can issue you a new driver’s license or state identification.
You will need to sign in, show your ID to the guards, and go through a metal detector. Please be respectful to the guards at the federal building and follow their orders. If they ask you to place your watch, or purse, or shoes on the metal detector, please do so without argument. If you are in a wheelchair, have a cane, or metal in your body, please add extra time to get through security. Once you exit through security, go to the elevators that are to your left. Take the elevator to the 4th Floor.
Once the elevator opens, turn to the left, and walk to the door on the right at the end of the hall. There will be another security guard there. That guard will ask you to sign in. He will also search for any bags you have brought with you. So, try not to bring a purse or bag, because it delays you. Then the guard will use a wand to determine if you have any metal or dangerous objects. Please cooperate with all of the guards at the front door to the building and at the hearing office.
