You should pay the fines as soon as possible, then the court will withdraw the warrants. If you are arrested on the warrants you could spend time in jail pending the resolution of the case.

You still must appear on the warrant in court. Additional money could be assessed. You just cannot go and pay what you should have paid and not be processed due to the warrant.

Not necessarily, because you are already in violation of probation. You need to hire a lawyer to go to court not only recall the warrants but also address the underlying violations of probation. If you show up by yourself I'm sure you know what the Judge can do.

Possibly but make sure not to drink before going to court. Don't be holding any drugs.

Probably but you should file a motion to quash first.

    Depending on the Court, you still may need to go before the Judge to have the warrant set aside. An attorney can resolve this matter for you.

    Practically speaking, paying them off should result in no additional punishment. However, a judge/police may not automatically lift the warrants since you still were in violation of the law by your delay.

    In NH, you must pay the fines in full in order for the court bench warrants to be lifted. Additionally, you may have to pay default fees at the court in which you failed to pay your fines. Once you paid the default fees, you may have to pay reinstatement fees at the NH DMV if your license was suspended due to the failure to pay the court fines and subsequent default.

    There is no way to get the warrant lifted without jail. The warrant (violation of probation warrant) can only be lifted by your incarceration.
