How can I take care of my out of state bench warrant? 28 Answers as of September 07, 2012I had to go to court for speeding 84+ mph. I got my license suspended, community service, and had to take a drivers ed class and $500 fine. I missed my compliance hearing because i had to move out of state which enabled me to comply as well.

If you missed a mandatory court appearance it is likely that the court will have issued a warrant for your arrest. Now, your driver's license will be pearmanently suspended until this matter is resolved. You should plan to return to the county where this is pending, go to the court and see what needs to be done to make corrections, even if you are arrested. Otherwise, consider hiring an attorney to resolve this for you.

You may get this resolved though an attorney in your current state of residence or you may need to contact one in the jurisdiction where it happened. Sometimes local attorneys can get better results than one from long distance. You are most likely not going to get your license back until it is taken care of.

You should retain a good criminal lawyer to surrender on the bench warrant. You could have moved and still made your court date but now you have made the situation more serious and could even have to post bail for your failure to appear. You will have a bench warrant on your record forever and that could cause problems if you are arrested again. You should take case of this before you are arrested on the warrant and held in jail.
