What happens if you missed your child custody court date?
If you don’t show up to your family court custody hearing, the court will likely enter a default judgment against you or dismiss the case. In most cases, the dismissal will be without prejudice, which means that if you are the petitioner, you may have the ability to refile your petition. I advise people to make sure they’re at all court appearances. It is extremely important that you are present because the court can dismiss your case and undo a lot of the hard work you’ve done to get to that point.
