Hello again,

Usually courts grant a temporary order without a hearing and the hearing is scheduled to provide the defendant with an opportunity to oppose the allegations made by the plaintiff/petitioner to avoid having the order made permanent.

If you do not appear at the hearing and defend in the matter, the order will typically be made permanent and you should be sent a copy of the court's order indicating what you must refrain from doing.

I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
