If a hearing has been set, but I have not been served, do I have to appear??

You have to be careful here based on all the factors involved. Proper service is at the address that you have on file with the court. If you moved out of state, but did not update that address with the court, then there could be issues where you have been served, and you could lose by default. Additionally, moving out of state during the pending case with out court permission, could subject you to contempt charges. You really need to find a way to hire a family law attorney to represent your interests here. Even if it is just to get the case dismissed.
