    Lawyers agree

    Answered . You can't ignore summons. If you are not able to physically appear in court, you need to file something, try to appear by phone, etc. You can't just ignore it. Now at this point you are going to need to get an attorney and ask for a rehearing ( within ten days) or appeal (within thirty days) or file for modification.
