I’m the defendant in a Summary Judgment Divorce hearing, scheduled for very soon. It is listed as a summary judgment divorce as opposed to uncontested on the Notice of Divorce Hearing.
I have a couple of questions about this. background: I’d filed a motion to dismiss but decided not to schedule it. I’d also filed an Answer to his Divorce Complaint. The only Claims for Relief were that I requested a name change and that costs (for the divorce proceeding) be borne by my husband, Plaintiff.
–Am I required to attend a Summary Judgment Hearing?
–Is there anything that might go terribly wrong for me if I choose not to attend?
– Is there even the slightest chance that the judge will see the Motion to Dismiss and do so without it having been scheduled if I attend, even if I don’t address it?
