How do I resolve a warrant?

Depending on the type of warrant and charge(s), the following options are available to you:
    1. Pay the full bail amount and close the case or receive a future court date.
    2. Pay a set bail amount and receive a new payment plan or future court date.
    3. If the warrant is bondable, post a surety bond and receive a future court date.
    4. File a motion to quash the warrant and receive a future court date.
    5. Surrender yourself to law enforcement.
Can someone else take care of my warrant for me?
    1. If you have been adjudicated (found guilty) and the only obligation you owe the court is payment of fines/fees, anyone can pay the bail amount in full and the case will be closed.  
    2. If you have been adjudicated (found guilty) and the only obligation is monetary that you are unable to pay in full, you or your attorney must appear in person to pay the warrant fee at which time you will receive a payment plan.
    3. If you have been adjudicated (found guilty) and you failed to comply with court orders other than a monetary obligation, you, your attorney or a bond company (if the warrant is bondable) must appear in person to post the required amount at which time you will receive a future court date.
    4. If you have not been adjudicated (no plea), anyone may appear in person, make full payment and close the case unless the charge requires a court appearance. The Court record will reflect a plea of guilty.
    5. If you have not been adjudicated (no plea), you or your attorney may appear in person to pay the warrant fee. Unless the charge requires a court appearance, you will receive a payment plan for the remaining balance. The Court record will reflect a plea of guilty.
    6. If you have not been adjudicated (no plea) and you want a court date, or the charge requires a court appearance, you, your attorney or a bond company (if the warrant is bondable) must appear in person to post the required amount at which time you will receive a future court date.
