Yes, you do need to attend court as a litigant in person - if you had a solicitor acting for you, and the undertaking was all agreed, there would be less need for you to attend.
An undertaking has to be given to the court - it is a promise to the court, by the person accused, without them making any admittances to your accusations, and without the court making any findings, that they will not do the things you have applied for them not to do. This promise has to be made in front of a judge and signed by the person accused.
It is a much easier process than a non molestation order that is objected to, as that will likely require a fact finding hearing to find out who is telling the truth.
Does that clarify?
