# Hatarat Nedarim should be done in a language that one understands, otherwise it isn't valid.<ref>Chayei Adam 138:8, Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 128:16. See Rama Yoreh Deah 228:3, [ Rabbi Eli Mansour ]</ref>
# The judges should sit for Hatarat Nedarim and the petitioner should stand.<ref>Shulchan Aruch YD 228:2-3 writes that the judges may perform Hatart Nedarim while standing if they uproot the Neder using Charata (regret) but should sit if they are uprooting the Neder using a Petach (a opening). Shach Yoreh Deah 228:9 writes that since the minhag is always to uproot a Neder using a Petach, the minhag is that the judges sit for the Hatarat Nedarim. <br />
Taz Yoreh Deah 228:7 writes that the petitioner need not stand, but the Shach also writes the minhag is that he does stand. Rabbi Akiva Eiger (comments on Shulchan Aruch YD 228:1) quotes the Maharikash who argues that the petitioner must stand, however, after the fact he fulfilled his obligation if he said it sitting.</ref>
