A: Depending on which side does not show up, the judge will either have a hearing without the Respondent there or the judge will dismiss the case if the Petitioner is not there.

A: The denial or granting of a temporary injunction has/had no impact on the setting of a hearing for a permanent injunction. If the petitioner fails to appear for any hearing without permission he or she should expect the petition to be dismissed. If the Respondent is properly served and does not show up he or she should exception the permanent injunction to be granted assuming that the statutory requirements for such an injunction are established. Many Petitioners and Respondents hire lawyers because the impact of an injunction is real and sometimes irreversible. Good luck
