Avoid an Unforeseen Arrest
For immediate assistance with your bench warrant or arrest warrant in Fresno or anywhere in California's Central Valley, you can reach us at (559) 222-2424. We know how frightening it can be to have a warrant out for your arrest. Imagine being at your place of employment only to have the police pull you out of a meeting to arrest you for an outstanding warrant. Think again. Law enforcement, unfortunately, doesn't care how much they embarrass you. You could also be pulled over during a routine traffic stop or encounter a checkpoint. Imagine being arrested immediately and winding up in jail for the entire weekend, until you make it in front of the judge the following Monday or Tuesday.
Bench warrants are routinely issued for failure to show up to a mandatory court date or to meet probation conditions, such as performing community service, signing up for a driving under the influence course, or payment of fines. A bench warrant is an order for a person to be immediately arrested on-site if they are encountered by a law enforcement officer.
Warrants = License Suspensions
Most people don't realize that a bench warrant, usually, also means the suspension of their license. If you fail to appear in court, the failure to appear notice is sent to the DMV and they will suspend your license until you come back to court to deal with it.
Generally, a failure to appear or a warrant will also be sent to DMV and your driver's license will be immediately suspended as soon as DMV receives the order from the court.
On most misdemeanor warrants your attendance in court is not required. Most likely, we can take care of it without you facing the hassle of attending court. On felony warrants, you are to be present at the initial appearance, and if a plea is reached when the court takes the plea. Depending on the seriousness of the felony and where you live in relationship to the court, even on a felony, you may not have to show up to all the court dates.
