1) You must understand that your actions will give you the best chance of the charges being dismissed. Whether the charges are dismissed will be based upon your criminal
background, any similar past charges, the fact that your wife wants a dismissal, and your actions to prevent a similar occurrence. Regardless, this will be the judge's decision and if the judge rules that the charges will stand, then the charges will stand even if your wife wants them dropped.
2) Family counselling so that the occurrence does not repeat. Anger management classes for the same result. Fully engage in these classes and follow through with recommendations. Contact your parole officer, if any, to get his/her recommendations on actions to take. Get the county or state involved for requested resources for you to change.

4) Your wife should write a letter explaining the event, that it had never occurred before, the nature of your relationship, and the actions that you have taken to change and any change that she has noticed. This will give you your best chance
