Can One File a Petition for an Annulment Without Appearing in Court?

No. Appearance in court is required during the pre-trial conference and when you take the witness stand during the trial proper. It may also be required if the public prosecutor conducts an investigation for Non-Collusion.

However, your appearance during pre-trial may be dispensed with if your lawyer or a duly authorized representative appears in court and proves a valid excuse for your absence.

Having said that, you don’t need to attend all trials and hearings set by the court. Personal appearance is only mandatory during the hearing discussed above.
