Question

How can I avoid having to testify against my husband in a spousal battery case in California?

My husband was charged with misdemeanor spousal battery. I have received a subpoena, I do not want to testify, we are going through a divorce and starting to try and resolve things somewhat amicably. I have severe anxiety and am having panic attacks about having to testify. What are my options? I thought a wife could not be forced to testifying against her husband?

What is the likelihood of it being resolved outside of court if we are only a few days away?

If I contact the prosecutors office can I request to not testify or that they agree to reduce or drop the charges in exchange for him doing counseling and/or anger management?
