    Default Protective Proceedings Court Hearing for an Infant Child

    My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: Virginia

    What occurs during a protective order hearing for a 3 month old? Especially if the mother is in jail & someone else has the baby in question.

    The baby has an open CPS case because he was born addicted to methadone and exposed to cocaine.

    Things got pretty messy last week when mom was arrested for FTA on 2 other charges and is currently in jail. I have physical custody of her son but nothing on paper yet (dealing with 2 CPS jurisdictions so it is taking a long time)

    I called the court and they advised me that I did not need to bring the child to the hearing & I did not need to show up since I do not have guardianship.

    What will happen since no one will be there for the hearing?

    Different things happen at different hearings - an initial petition, a hearing on that petition, review hearings, disposition hearings....

    Presumably somebody will be present for the hearing.
