When I joined my domestic partner to a court hearing, the other party requested that I do not attend any future court hearings. I have never exchanged any type of communication with them, nor do I intend to in the future. Since it is a open court hearing, I thought it would be fine, I thought moral support would help ease the stress for my partner.
Generally a courtroom is considered a neutral area where either party may be present provided that there is NO interacting. This includes coming to and going from the courthouse.
If I understand your question, you don't have a restriction on you from an order of the court. It is your partner that has the hearing. You were just going to be a help to your partner?
There isn't a legal reason why you shouldn't be at the hearing, right? If all of this is correct you can be there and if you want to be there and if your partner wants you to be there then go. On the other hand, if it will de-fuse and volatile situation consider it to keep the peace.
"the other party requested that I do not attend any future court hearings." Unless the court orders that you not be in the courtroom, you have the right to be in any courtroom that has a hearing open to the public and can ignore what the other party wants.
As long as you are not causing a disturbance, the court personnel is not going to do anything to restrict your presence at an open hearing.
