What happens when the court sends me a court date but for the wrong charge?

It could be a mistake or another case you didn’t know about. One way or the other, you will need to resolve the case you were arrested for.
You need an attorney, a domestic violence conviction has life long ramifications (you lose you firmarms rights under federal law). As of the Court's error, they will correct it eventually and if you ignore the summons because of the error you are putting yourself at additional risk, LAWYER UP!
To the PROSPECTIVE client, please review my efforts to assist by quickly and frankly responding to your question with AVVO. Also, please realize this PRELIMINARY answer to your question(s) is for general purposes and based upon the information you have conveyed. As the response is based on very limited information it MUST NOT be relied upon as the basis for action or inaction. If you are seeking legal advice which you can and should rely upon you will have to engage an attorney, provide all of the facts in detail and answer their questions. My response does NOT establish an attorney-client relationship. That may only be established by mutual agreement, and the signing of a written retainer agreement, which will require payment for our services. Providing counsel and representation is what we do for a living and, just like you, we must get paid for our work.
