I have just been informed that I will receive a subpoena to testify in Orphans Court of Philadelphia County. My question is do I have to show up because I really do not want to testify and also If I do go, do they have to pay me for coming?
You have to show up. It says that right on the subpoena. You will not be paid to testify. There is a witness fee that may have come with the subpoena of about $20.00.
If you do not appear after being served with a valid subpoena, the Judge can hold you in Contempt of Court. You have to go.
