If I am the victim of my husbands simple battery charge do I have to go to court when he does?

He is currently out on bond and has a court date of Dec. 4. Do I have to be there and if so what do I need to do?

if you do not go the state can continue the case, or prosecute the case w/o you being there. only if you have gotten proper notice do you have to be present, you may want to go just to be on the safe side, you may help be a part of the negotations that will benefit your husband
