A: If it was a guardianship hearing, you will most likely not get in trouble. Many parents with children in guardianships do not appear in court. However, your failure to appear at court hearings could be detrimental to you in the future. If there comes a time when you would like the children returned to you, the judge may take into account how many court hearings you have attended. On the other hand, guardianships are generally reviewed only once or twice a year, so don't miss the next one. Go to the Court house and make sure the court clerk puts your current address and mailing address (if different) in the case file. That way, you will never miss another hearing.
