    The short answer is that you will be held in contempt of court. this can result in jail time, so do not ignore the subpoena. the subpoena may contain contact information for the person that issued the subpoena. Contact that person and inform them of your personal conflict. In some instances, the matter can be re-scheduled. You can also use the subpoena to get out of work. You would need to consult an employment lawyer about the consequences to an employer that punishes an employee for...

    The injunction can be dissolved, but will require a hearing in front of the judge that entered the order. Typically, judges do not want to dissolve injunctions unless new information is presented to the judge. the State's dropping of the criminal charges can be the new information that is required, but this is no guarantee. Criminal cases require a higher level of proof than injunction cases. It is possible to have an injunction held in place when related criminal charges were dropped....

    No. Clearly, your goal is to have the State drop the charges. The subpoena likely contains the name and phone number of the prosecutor. Consider calling him/her and expressing your desires. Careful not to make false statements as that could expose you to criminal charges. If you have no fear of your husband and believe the charge was a misunderstanding of the facts, express that. Prosecutors tend to not want to waste their time with cases involving disinterested witnesses. If you are...

    There may be no area of the law in which police, prosecutors and DCF overreact more than allegations involving child abuse. Even the most minor allegation can lead to criminal charges. You should immediately contact an attorney in your area with experience in dealing with these matters.
