Uh, have you been to court, like, ever?
If he didn't show up, she would most likely be awarded everything she is asking. She would get what she deserves, as well as her child.
The court's DO THAT because if a parent does not show up, it makes them look irresponsible and the court's recognize that as a judge of character, and they will award the remaining parent with what they are asking for in the case.
This is what the COURT decides.
Nothing would be prolonged. If he didn't show up, they would not reschedule the court date. They would just have the court session without him, because he was too irresponsible to show up on his own, like an adult.
You are saying things that are just not true. I just don't know any other way to put it.
You sound extremely uneducated.
