Question: How do I drop dv charges in Kansas City, Missouri ?

My husband and I got in a fight. Both sides are responsible and I pressed charges in the heat of the moment. I want to drop them. How do I do that

 

Answer:

The city or state is the one who has brought the charges against your husband, not you. Only the prosecutor has the decision to drop the charges. You can seek an attorney to help you voice your desire to have them dropped, but if the prosecutor subpeonas you, you must testify
