No, the defendant (debtor) does not have to appear at the date of the hearing. A non appearance usually results in a default judgment being entered against the debtor. The debtor will receive a notice of final judgment before the judgment creditor can take steps to have the judgment executed.

In New York state can your wages be garnished without being given notice of a court appearance?

No. Wages can never be garnished without providing an opportunity to the borrower (debtor) to explain their particular situation. If you have legal representation, they are obliged to let you know if you are being asked to appear in court. At that point, you and your attorney would decide if showing up for the hearing is the best choice of action.
