Notice to waive appearance at hearing

Hello Joshua,

I wanted to know if there were a form I could file to request that the judge decide my petition without me appearing. While I am currently in California I will be moving out of state soon and I am almost certain that the hearing date will be after I have already left the state. Is there anything I can do in this particular situation?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Man, this response is way late. Sorry. Non-attendance is handled differently in each court. Some may allow you to appear telephonically--but only on a separate motion to do so. Some may allow you to reschedule--but, again, only after you file a separate motion to do so. This is a topic way beyond a guide like this, and my advice is to call the public defender's office in that county and ask them if they'll appear for you.
