Please post your reference on this - she DOES have to go to Court and she can be FORCED to go to Court.
He put his hands on her. That's assault and that's abuse. Those are criminal acts.
All he did was push her over? You can't be serious!
She doesn't get to decide whether the case moves forward. She can withdraw, refuse to testify and anything in between and it can and possibly will go forward.
The mindset of the OP is beyond my comprehension but ...
At any rate your legal advice is straight out, dead wrong and you do a disservice to every man and woman whose "partner" EVER laid a hand on him or her. It's not an "only" situation.
