I made a DVO application against my ex partner. The order is currently only temporary and the court date has been adjourned til a later date. However, I wish to withdraw my application as circumstances have changed and wish to not carry out the DVO against him. I have been told I have to fill out a new application to have the DVO withdrawn and have to see the magistrate again. How easy is it to have the magistrate to allow a withdraw? If I don’t attend future court hearings will they just dismiss the case entirely?
