Thank. you for the letter.  In short, if you are ordained to appear in court you must go.  If you fail to attend, a warrant can be sought for your arrest.  If there is any legitimate reason you cannot go, you must contact the court immediately and explain the reasons as to why.  If there are travel issues, you can still attend a hearing by use of internet video communications.

Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.

Should you require any further assistance on this matter, please do not hesitate to post a further questions for additional assistance.

Kindest Regards.
