a member of my family is the respondant to a divorce proceeding, can other family members attend the hearing if not part of the proceedings?

The answer is technically "yes", but the family members can be "sequestered" (forced to leave the courtroom) if either of the parties states that they may consider calling them as witnesses. If I were on the other side, I would have your family sequestered simply to reserve my right to call one of the family members to the stand if I needed to. I guess it depends on the attorney.
