What to do when you have an arrest warrant?

When some contracts are allocated against you, it might cause many problems, but you have to take it as a regular thing if you are not guilty. But when you receive an arrest warrant, it may cause you problems in your daily life. Here are some information and tips for you to learn.

What does an arrest warrant mean?


They are a warrant given to a law enforcement officer by a judge in a court of law that grants the law enforcement officer the right and ability to arrest a person of interest about a crime. An arrest warrant is signed in a court of law by presenting a judge with probable cause to arrest the suspect.

If upon requesting an arrest warrant, any concrete evidence can be presented before the judge will speed up the process, it should be disclosed.

Officers or prosecutors make sure they have two fragments of evidence to submit to the judge before demanding an arrest warrant.

This is most needed because of crimes witnessed by a police officer. If malicious mischief is committed in front of the police officer’s eyes, the arrest can be made without a warrant.

Types of warrants 

Here are the most common types of warrant breaks:

Cost warrant

For example, cost warrants (AKA Green Warrant or Rule 8 Warrant) are about money that you owe the court. These may be due to a ticket or a fine that has not been paid.

Some jurisdictions will allow you to come into your own, either pay the fine or allow you to set up a payment plan. Other courts will require you to hold a cash bond or a bondsman to post a bond.

Bench warrant

They are issued by a judge when a defendant fails to appear in court. Bench warrants can also be given when probable causes show that a crime has been committed or when new charges have been laid against a defendant.

Walk-throughs can be done to clear warrants in many jurisdictions. In some cases, the defendant may come out in anger before a judge vacate the contract. It is essential to consult with a lawyer and guarantor to determine what options are available.

Search warrant

They are issued by a judge who empowers officers to search a specific property for a particular purpose. They are not arresting warrants, although they can be printed with an arrest.

Probable cause warrant

A probable cause arrest warrant is not required. For example, if an officer has probable causes that show the crime committed and does not have time to obtain a contract, he may make an arrest. If the police are testifying, warrants are not required, and they can take immediate action.

What can you do with the arrest warrants?

1- Do nothing

Not a good choice, but people choose it by default. Disregarding a warrant will not make it go absent. Eventually, you will be arrested and taken to jail.

Possibly at the most inconvenient time. We have seen clients getting charged at work or in front of their family members.

If you are arrested during a traffic stop, your vehicle will most likely be towed. You may also be detained in a different jurisdiction and have to wait to be transferred to a jurisdiction with a warrant.

It can only mean transfer to jail for ten days. After you get arrested, it will become challenging to communicate from behind bars.

2- Keep this in mind

In many cases, the warrant can be approved without you having to go to jail. A lawyer can advise you of the best course of action to vacate the contract, and a bondservant may be prepared to post a bond if necessary.

So, let’s talk more about that other option so that you can get a warrant cleared before you get into the back of a police car. It is essential to know which jurisdiction has issued the warrant.

Each jurisdiction is different, and they all have other policies as to how the contracts may or may not be cleared.

Things you should not do with an arrest warrant

  • Warrants don’t go away, and you’re much better off addressing it with a skilled lawyer and a bondman.
  • If you have not taken care of it, and you come in contact with an officer, do not attempt to run. You will only make it worse and add it to the list of charges against you. Remain calm and polite.
  • Do not attempt to travel out of the city – specifically internationally. Airport Security checks the database for outstanding warrants, and if you attempt to travel, it will be assumed that you are trying to escape.
  • Never try to bend yourself without talking to a lawyer and bondsman. A lawyer can advise you of the best course of action.
