About 6 months ago I filled out child support papers for my son's father. Over th epast months we have worked everything out and we are both doing our part. Do we have to still attend court or can this matter be quashed out of court?
Yes you will still have to attend court, it cannot just go away without them knowing you have "worked things out." It would be wise to comply with the subpoena and appear at the court hearing.

Is there any other "agency" involved? Did you get public assistance or did you file a petition yourself. Usually if you filed it on your behalf, and you have not received public assistance, you can dismiss your case as the petitioner. Always check with a local attorney to make sure
Yes. A subpoena an order from the court making it mandatory that you attend. Failure to attend could result in contempt which includes you being fined and jailed. If you have things worked out you should attend and let the judge know of this fact.
