You Can Get Your Life Back On Track After Being Issued A Bench Warrant

A judge will issue someone a bench warrant when the person has been criminally charged and fails to appear in court. If you ever find yourself in this situation, you will need to contact an attorney right away. You would be surprised at how many bench warrant arrests happen over something as small as traffic ticket.

A bench warrant is not something that should be taken lightly. For instance, if you fail to appear in court on a warrant for a traffic ticket, you will likely have your driver's license suspended. The judge's decision will have a major impact on your financial status and your personal life. You can also face steep fines and possibly time in jail.

You can be issued a bench warrant for a number of reasons, and some of those reasons are listed below:

  • Not paying fines that are owed
  • Not appearing in court
  • Not complying with a subpoena
  • Unpaid child support or alimony payments

It is important that you understand all the consequences you can face if you are ever issued a bench warrant. If you do not understand the circumstances, you should consult with an attorney who can make sure you take the right steps.
