A: Yes, but only if the judge allows one or both sides to call in for the motion hearing, Telephonic hearings are now being encouraged by trial judges for many different reasons not relevant here.

A: It depends on the judge. Usually in domestic violence cases, the court wants to ensure that the petitioner is not being coerced to dissolve the injunction and will require a personal appearance.
