Q: I filed assault charges against my soon to be ex husband and his mother. What happens next?
A: If you went to the Magistrate, and a warrant was issued, then once your soon to be ex-husband and his mother are arrested on the charges, they will be given a court date, and you will hear from the Commonwealth Attorney about what the incident was. If you went to the police and filed a report, then you can check with the Officer you filed the report with to see if any charges were taken out. If so, then once they are arrested and given a court date, you will hear from the Commonwealth Attorney.
