How can I go about this. I have provided his solicitor with a letter stating that I want to with draw all charges and also sent a copy to Campbell town Local Court and the DPP not sure if this is correct. I am not going to be able to make it to court next Wednesday for his next bail hearing so I was hoping that someone would be able to advise me of what I will need to do.

Answer

Try speaking to the prosecutor--they have the right to continue to pursue the case on their own (even if you don't want them to) but if they feel this was a one-time incident and will never happen again--they may drop it; they want to make sure no abuse is continuing once you two are back together--
