After months of abuse I left my husband, took our child, and went to a battered women's shelter because I feared for my child's safety as well as mine. I filed for a protective order but it was denied without a reason. My husband filed for divorce and a restraining order and the TRO was granted. There have been several hearings but I wasn't served for any of them.so I didn't go. My husband contacted me and threatened that i was going to jail for kidnapping and contempt of court. Can that be true? There is no court order for custody. There is another hearing coming up but i haven't been served. Do i go? Will the judge punish me once i do show up? I have been hiding for 2 months because of fear of my aggressive husband. Will the judge/court believe me after keeping quiet for so long?
