When you receive a traffic ticket, you have certain obligations including appearing for your court date.
When you resolve your traffic citation, you may have additional obligations such as paying a fine, providing proof of registration or insurance or a driver’s license, or completing traffic school.
Usually the obligations you have when your ticket is resolved have certain deadlines. Unfortunately, sometimes, life gets in the way of these obligations and people fail to do the things that are required of them either when they receive the ticket or after their ticket is resolved. If this happens, a traffic warrant may be issued.
Having a traffic warrant issued means that you could be arrested and/or your driver’s license could be suspended.
It is important that if you think you have a traffic warrant issued for you or if you know you are the target of a traffic warrant, you contact a traffic warrant attorney immediately.
What Are the Consequences of A Traffic Warrant?
It is understandable how someone can end up with a traffic warrant.
If you forgot about your court date, if you forgot to pay your fine on time or if you had a scheduling conflict with your court date, it is likely you have a traffic warrant. Whatever the reason for failing to follow through, the court will issue a traffic related warrant.
Having a traffic warrant issued means that you can be arrested if stopped, you can be prohibited from getting on an airplane, and you will likely have your driver’s license suspended. You are also likely to face additional fines and penalties.
Hiring a traffic warrant lawyer can help you to resolve the matter, and get your life back on track, sooner rather than later.
What Will A Traffic Warrant Lawyer Do For Me?
A traffic warrant attorney will immediately reach out to the court issuing your traffic warrant in an effort to let the Court know that you are now represented by an attorney.
In addition, your traffic warrant lawyer will schedule a time to meet with the prosecutor to discuss your options for quashing the warrant and getting your traffic citation negotiated.
This might include negotiating a payment plan for your fines, or getting you additional time to comply with the terms of an already negotiated traffic ticket.
