You may have a great deal of stress and anxiety knowing that you could be arrested at any time because you have an active warrant on you. There are many possibilities why you might have an active warrant out for your arrest. You may have missed a court date, failed to pay a fine, or have been associated with a crime, the best course of action to resolve your active arrest warrant is to turn yourself in. There are several ways to handle this process. You could turn yourself in and pay the full amount of bail, which may be a large sum of money that could be better spent on family expenses or the fees for a good defense attorney. You could also post a bond with Delta Bail Bonds. This will allow you to pay just a portion of your bail amount and return home until your hearing.
How can you work around a warrant for your arrest without actually being arrested? This may surprise you, but depending on the original crime, it can be a simple process.
What is a Warrant?
A warrant is a judge’s approval to arrest someone immediately upon contact because of breaking the law in some form. In other words, the arrest is immediate.
What to Do When You Have a Warrant
First thing is to gather all your information. You need to find out:
- How much is the warrant?
- Why do you have a warrant (what are you accused of)?
- When was it issued?
- Is it a state or federal issued warrant?
Have your warrant in hand and call your district or county clerk’s office. When you have all of the above information, you can move forward by taking care of your warrant.
How to Take Action
Taking action can spare you from future stress and keep you from getting into a bigger financial bind. Here’s a closer look at what you should do if you have an active warrant.
Post a bond – With a bail bond, you pay a portion of your total bail and agree to attend your court date so that you do not have to spend time in jail before your trial.
Talk to an attorney – The money that you save by not paying all of your bail could be used to hire a defense attorney who can help you with your case.
