What should I do if I have a warrant out for me? 2 Answers as of April 27, 2011I recently received a letter in the mail stating that I have warrant out. My husband went to legal assistance on base to ask for help. They said it's for assault charge and failure to appear in court. The charge is from five years ago in Texas. My husband is in the army so the last past four years we have been moving. My understanding when the incident happen I only received a warning it's been five years now and we haven't heard anything til now. We currently live in Virginia. The legal assistance said I need to get a hold of some type of Texas attorney for help. Any help would be appreciated.

First, you do need to handle this matter and it is better to handle it now than to wait until your name is put into a database and you are pulled over for a traffic stop and arrested. How it is handled is dependent upon the jurisdiction, which is why I ask what County has the warrant out for you.
