She broke the agreement in not having her now ex boyfriend at the time around my kids. She has attempted suicide multiple times now that I have proof of. I want to know what happens if she doesn't respond to our upcoming court date. I would like physical and legal custody. She has not attended therapy or Co parenting classes that they sent her to do I have done everything and finished my therapy .
If the other side does not appear at the hearing, the court will make a decision without her input.
If she doesn't appear then you just present your case and the Court will make a decision. Good luck.
Assuming she was served properly, if she fails to appear at the hearing, the court may proceed without her since she is not there to contest any of your requests.
