Generally the defense attorney will inform the defendant how to dress for a trial. The defendant does not appear in jail or prison garb at the actual trial, this however is not true when it pertains to arraignments or pre-trial disclosure hearings.

Because the bond (or bail) was accepted as surety that the defendant WOULD appear in court - if the defendant fails to appear, the bond (or bail) is forfeited and seized by the court.

In civil cases if a plaintiff fails to appear the case is dismissed usually without prejudice (meaning it can be refiled). If the defendant fails to appear the plaintiff will prevail and obtain a default judgment.

It depends on the type of case and the type of hearing the defendant fails to appear for.

The defendant will most likely loose for not showing up and have to settle regardless.

Could you possibly mean FTA? That would be 'FAILED to Appear.'

"charges against them" indicates that the answer is the "defendant".

The trial will go forward as scheduled and if the defendant does not appear in court at the time of the suit a default judgment will likely be entered in favor of the plaintiff.

If the plaintiff appears and the defendant does not what usually happens is a default judgment is issued in favor of the plaintiff. How the judgment is executed depends upon the laws of the state where the defendant resides. It is not legally required for a defendant in a civil suit to appear unless he or she has received a subpoena as well as or in place of the civil summons.

Exparte means when the decree is passed in the absence of the defendant. when the plaintiff appears and the defendant doesnot appear ,the court hears the suit and pass exparte decree .

If the defendant fails to appear in a civil court lawsuit, the plaintiff can motion the court for what is known as a default judgement. In laymen terms, they win. If the defendant shows up but the plaintiff did not, they can motion to have the case dismissed with prejudice. This means that the person who sued them cannot bring the same matter back to the courts again.

I believe you might be referring to a writ of "Habeus Corpus."Each jurisdiction will have "Rules of the Court" e.g. Rules of the Federal Magistrates Court of the Commonwealth of Australia. Each set of rules will contain a section/area on 'Standing' that is the authority to appear before the court as a 'party' to an action, i.e. applicant/respondent, prosecutor/defendant, plaintiff/defendant, etc; or as a 'friend of the court' such representation being necessary for equitable court process.

There is no direct adverb form. The adverb forms of the participial adjectives (authorizedly and authorizingly) do not appear in dictionaries, nor does authorizably.

Kind of a broad question with no specifics - but - generally the one person who has the undeniable right to appear in person in court is the accused defendant.

It is a criminal offense and the defendant must appear in court to plead to the charge.

There really is no list of options for the defendant. The defendant must show up at the appointed time and place and represent their own interest at the hearing. If they cannot appear on that date they should visit the court and try to reschedule the hearing. It is always better to be represented by an attorney.There really is no list of options for the defendant.

All parties areรŠrequired to appear at a judgement hearing. A plaintiff who doesn't at the hearing could see their case dismissed by the judge, and a default judgement may go to the defendant. The opposite can also occur with the Plaintiff getting theรŠ default judgement is the defendant doesn't show up.

If it is a subpoena to appear in court for any reason you may be held in contempt for failure to appear. If it is a summons for you to appear as a defendant in some kind of civil action you may be found liable in default for failing to appear to defend yourself.

No. If the defendant is willing to have a judgment entered agains him/her for the amount demanded in the complaint, no appearance is necessary even though the Summons commands an appearance. The appearance is necessary only to object to the claim in the complaint.

If the defendant is ordered to appear at a linuep, he certainly may appear there accompanied by counsel, if he wishes. However, unless questioning is going to take place, if he has already been advised of his 5th Amendment rights and signified that he does not wish to answer questions, it's not clear what the attorneys presence would serve.

Defendant should not have a lawyer in Small Claims Court. Most small claims actions forbid having an attorney appear unless the attorney is the plaintiff or defendant.

It means the defendant has failed to appear, is missing or escaped. An arrest warrant will be issued for the person.
