Hi, thank you for your question. Despite the extremely late notice you have been given, if you are a party to the proceedings you should attend the hearing.
For further information please confirm what the application is about and who it is by?
In the meantime if you found my information provided helpful please could you rate my response positively using the stars at the top of this page as I will not be credited for my response without a positive rating.
Thank you for your further information. I do not think you will have adequate time to request an adjournment unless it can be agreed with your ex-partner. Furthermore, it is unlikely that the hearing would have been listed today by the court if you have been waiting a few months for the listing - the court would have written to both of you giving adequate notice unless an urgent hearing is required. You should check with the court to ensure that they have your address on record so that documents are sent directly to you.
I see, in that case it may be an urgent issue that has led to the court hearing
