You should absolutely attend any hearing that will affect your rights during a pendency of a divorce.

At a hearing, if you do not attend, an order can be entered against you by default (not showing up). Once an order of court is entered, it is very difficult, if not impossible in some cases, for you to undo those orders.

Any order entered against you will follow you throughout the pendency of your divorce and could have significant effects on the overall outcome of your divorce matter, as well as other ancillary matters such as child custody and support.
