Yes, you have to be present in the court or if you cannot make it then your lawyer has to be present in court to request for another date. Kindly make sure that you are present in front of the magistrate on the given date.

The internet is not a lawyer and neither are you.
Talk to a real lawyer about your legal issue.

Get a lawyer to file a petition on your behalf outlining your difficulty or get the said petition submitted by some near relative / family member. But you may be asked to appear on a next short date fixed by the Court, so also mention when you will be available in town.

If you have received the summons issued to you by the Ld. Court, you have to appear in the Court in person and file your written statement through your lawyer .. If you are unable to appear, in that event you have to file a petition through your lawyer praying for grant an adjournment for filling the WS.. Hope this suggestion will help you.. Thanks..
