Yes, she has a right, can and should attend next date of hearing. along with her reply to the petition filed by you

Do not get over-excited and anxious as the court procedure is similar for several decades and it may take a minimum of 5 years to get a verdict in normal circumstances.  If the other party wanted to extort and keep the petitioner anxious, he/she can play a number of games through their counsel.  You can only go to court, and getting verdict depends on several other factors not within your hands or expectations.

The query suggests no legal elements.

she will come or not, its depend on her, but after service of summons, if she will not appear before the court then the court may proceed her ex-party and fixed the matter for framing of issues and petitioner evidence, after petitioner evidence, if court think fit that the petitioner proved his case then pass judgment and decree of divorce based on the grounds of the petition.
