Family Law Attorney
If the moving party does not appear in court for the hearing the case is usually dismissed. Just because you do not believe they are going to show up is no reason not to go yourself.
They just might appear and if you are not there an order could be issued against you. Make sure you file your answer to the restraining order with the court at least five days prior to the hearing.

DUI / DWI Attorney
Generally if the accuser does not appear in court for the hearing the case is dismissed. However you should still file your answer to the restraining order with the court. In addition you should also keep in mind that depending on the allegations there could still be criminal charges filed.
Please contact my office I would be happy to assist you with any further questions you might have.
