Which I didn't do anything to her..just mouth conversation happened than she left .. although I tried to convince her to come back she didn't came. Now what to do..?
Notice or summon of the court should not be ignored or avoided otherwise exparte proceedings and order against you will follow that may result in order really detrimental in your interest.
She must be demanding maintenance, place of residence and child custody from you in her DV petition, that you must defend.
