Your husband should call the court clerk and inquire if he can make a telephone appearance instead of being physically present in the courtroom because of the distance from the state where he resides to the court.
If a telephonic appearance is allowed, your husband should ask for the forms he needs to file to request it and the filing deadline prior to the hearing for submitting the required documents. If your husband misses the filing deadline or does not file the appropriate forms, his request for a telephonic hearing will be denied.
