A: It really depends. I'd be curious to know what they are having you go to court for. If it's for a preliminary hearing, then it needs to be done because your husband could testify as to what happened and express his wish to not proceed. Regardless, depending on how long it has been since the alleged conduct occurred, there is also the possibility of seeking a dismissal due to a speedy trial violation.
