I received a 'notice of trial setting conference'. Do I need a lawyer to attend it with me??
If you intend to retain an attorney he is the one that needs to handle the setting of the case for trial. So the answer is yes.

We don't have any join property nor child, do I need to attend the conference? If I dont go, is there anything will happen to me?

If there is no property or children then I don't see any reason for you to attend if you don't want to. They are not going to send the Sheriff after you. Is there some reason you don't qualify for a Summary Dissolution

He purchase a house while we were together, then when I move out I didn't ask for anything. We separated for 3 years. I don't owe him anything and don't want anything from him.

If I don't attend the meeting will my divorce be completed???
