  • Courts can subpoena anyone. An adult does not need to consent to be subpoenaed, so why would consent be needed for a child? "Any person who testifies at a court hearing is a witness. Anyone that may have seen an accident, may have witnessed a crime, may know the character of a person involved in a trial or is directly involved in a trial may be called as a witness. A witness may voluntarily testify or may receive a subpoena or court order to appear in court. If you receive a subpoena or court order to appear in court, you must obey the subpoena or court order to avoid possible legal penalties. The subpoena will give the date, time and location for you to appear. If you do not testify on the first day that you appear in court, the judge may order you to appear again at a later date and time." http://www.courts.state.va.us/faq/misc.html
