A: Your circumstances are unfortunate. The defendant can file a petition with the court, however it does not mean the court cannot/will not dismiss it. Given the facts, it is best to present to the court the details you’ve outlined here. Contacting an attorney may prove extremely helpful for you.

We wish you well.
