If you don't show up the court would grant her the divorce but would postpone the issue of property division. You are going to have to show up for the hearing somehow. If not, the Court would divide your marital property based on what your wife has told the Court.

So negotiate some more with your wife. Show up for the hearing to protect your interests.
