What will happen if I don't appear?

Failure to appear in response to a subpoena may result in the Court issuing a warrant for your arrest, and may be punishable by fines and/or jail. The Courts do not look kindly at having to reschedule cases and inconveniencing all of the involved parties and other witness because of the failure of a witness to appear as ordered.
