What happens if you don’t show up to a hearing at family court?

What happens if you don’t attend a family court hearing?

It’s never a good idea to not show up for your court hearing in your divorce or custody case.

Sometimes there can be more than one hearing. You are only expected to attend the final hearing. Failing to attend your hearing at court when your attendance is required can have an impact on your case. The penalty can range from a fine; to reduced compensation; to having your case thrown out completely.

Many judges consider failing to appear at a court hearing as a sign of lack of remorse or of disrespect for the court.
