Q: What does “order to come” mean after a party doesn’t show up to court for a motion to enter hearing in family court.

The motion to enter was a final order that was agreed to in court on record and approved by judge. We just needed judge,plaintiff and defendant to sign but defendant didn’t show.

A: "Order to come" is not a technical legal term with a defined meaning, so that phrase should be given its ordinary and customary meaning in the context in which it is being used.

There is a legal document called an "Order to Appear" which is commonly used to compel a party's attendance at a hearing.
