usually there would not be any adjournments in high courts just like lower courts and if the matter is listed and came up for hearing your counsel must be ready for telling the hearing and matter will be decided expediently

See generally the notice is issued three times and if the respondent doesn't appear even after repeated notice, the proceedings can initiated ex-parte that is without the appearance of Respondent. In such a scenario, the respondent will be left defenseless. However, in certain circumstances, courts even set aside ex-parte proceedings on genuine grounds.
