This is not intended as individual legal advice and there is no attorney client relationship established by this answer. It is advisable that you seek individualized legal assistance. This is not a substitute for hiring an attorney.
It appears from your question that you were arraigned in the Court of Common Pleas, is that correct? If so, it does depend on how full the court schedule is but a month is not an unusual amount of time before you receive your next court date. If you are referring to a District Court arraignment, you most likely should have already been given your preliminary hearing date. If not, you should contact the District Justice's office immediately.
You should have received your court date at the arraignment. Speak with your attorney. If you miss court, a bench warrant may be issued.
