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.

Attend the proceeding, do not ignore or take it lightly.

Contest the case(s) as advised by the lawyer engaged by you.

Don't waiting/ accept any second opinion or advise of experts despite the fact it is available FREE OF COST.

You have got the summomons for Dv matter.  Ypou have filed divorce petition and Dv matter has different consequences, implications and repurcussion.   So do not take it lightly, but do not take it seiously too, but do not ignore the matter.    You have to attend at least frst time while filing the say  Engage  good lawyer who will represent you on every court date..
