I appreciate your response but still have additional questions. The paperwork was delivered by the local sheriff and says "notice of hearing and order". Is that a subpoena? I still don't understand the reason for attending the hearing if this isn't a subpoena. If he has no intention to go back to that area again, what difference does the pfa make? Does this show up on his police record? and can it be dismissed if he shows up and explains to them he has moved out of the area with no intention of returning? Will it cost him anything either way?
