I really need help!

My ex went to jail for harrassment and domestic violence. I was told I would recieve notification in the mail about the court date however I never did and missed the courtdate. Is there anyway to dispute this? He got off scottfree and he beat me for three years and deserves to go to jail. What do I do?

  • You can go down to the courthouse and ask if they could redo the court date, it kinda depends because all states are different. I know there has to be something you can do! I'm sorry this happened to you and I am glad that you got out of that kind of relationship! It's not healthy!

  • I don't really have any answers for you, but maybe call the court that handled the case and see if there is anything they can do. Talk to a lawyer?? Best of luck to you hun!

  • I lived in Georgia at the time, but I went through this same kind of situation, and I never received a letter either. I was told that I wouldn't need to be there.

  • I would go down and pitch a flying fit mama. Is this for the car incident or prior stuff?
