Order to show cause
If respondent does not appear at court hearing for ''order to show cause''. Can respondent's attorney stand in on his behalf? It was always stated to me, that if respondent does not appear then it is contempt of court. When is it not considered a contempt?

Re: Order to show cause
respondent's attorney can of course make an appearance. he or she will likely request and receive a continuance. he or she can't testify on behalf of his or her client.
