California Warrants – Frequently Asked Questions

I missed my court date and I have a warrant, what should I do?

Depending on the kind of case you have, generally the warrants are there so that the police can take you to court so that a judge can make a decision in regards to your case.
Before this happens, you should seek legal council to represent you during this process.

How do I know if I have a warrant?

If you miss your court date for any misdemeanor or felony a warrant for your arrest will be issued. 

How important is it to have representation in the event I am issued a warrant?

In the event of any arrest in which you do not appear for a court hearing date the court will issue an arrest warrant.

You are advised to have an experienced attorney to recall your warrant and resolve your case in your favor. Without representation this might result in severe consequences. 

Once you or your attorney appear in court the warrant will be recalled and quashed afterwards there would be a new hearing for a future date in which the case can be settled.
