At first hearing for a domestic violence protection order, respondent showed up with an attorney that asked for continuance based on not receiving the petition with enough advance notice. He spoke for the respondent at the hearing and has since mailed out a subpoena signed as attorney for respondent. Is he also required to file his notice of appearance? Or do judges in these courts often just allow representation as such? Is there a benefit either way, or could I ask for a continuance if no notice of appearance is provided?
