I took someone to court and went through mediation and all he had to do was pay a fine they scheduled abother court Date.
Did he pay the fine? What type of hearing is set before the court? What was the initial issue? You will need to provide additional information before any general legal information can be furnished.
This information is given for legal education only. It may not work for your specific situation. It is not legal advice, and I am not your lawyer. You have to find your own local lawyer to get legal advice and help with your problem.
Easiest way to find out is call the DA's office and ask if they require you to be there. Then call the clerks office as a backup and ask if you are required to be there. Hard to tell from the basic info you've listed.
Statements I have made are limited by the information that you have provided and therefore may not contain all the pertinent information. You should consult with an attorney to discuss all relevant details before acting on any information provided here. No attorney-client relationship has been created. I am a licensed attorney in North Carolina only.
If you brought the case to court, you (or your attorney) will need to appear at each court date. Best of luck!
