A: Is this a subpoena to testify at trial or by deposition? Either way as her parent, you are absolutely entitled to be present during her questioning. My suggestion would be to hire an attorney to represent you in the matter, so the attorney can make appropriate objections to questions being asked and protect your rights and keep any consequences to a minimum.
