My husband choked me. Once the Trooper saw the marks on my neck he said he had to arrest my husband. I did not want him arrested and have no interest in perusing this any further. I never want to see him again, especially not in court. I'd like to know how to get out of this and what will happen if I ignore the summons? I was told that they will threaten to issue a bench warrant, but that they won't go through with it.
If you have been summoned to appear in court, and you ignore that summons, you will very likely be arrested. That aside, you need to file for divorce. Use the Find a Lawyer tab on AVVO and look up local family law/divorce attorneys and call them. You need a lawyer!
