Help for Warrants in Chicago
Call Our Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney Now
In Illinois, missing a required court date is known as "failure to
appear." If you missed your court date, the judge will likely issue
a warrant for your arrest. The warrant will not go away until you are
found and arrested or your attorney persuades the judge to quash and recall
Arrest warrants may be issued for numerous reasons, such as:
- Failure to pay child support
- Multiple traffic tickets
- Not following up with probation meetings
If a warrant was issued for your arrest, it is extremely important to retain
legal representation from a
Chicago criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. The moment you are stopped by law enforcement, you
are subject to arrest, regardless of the original reason for the stop.
With a lawyer on your side, you can effectively work to remove the warrant
and have the issue taken care of before you are arrested.
Quashing an Arrest Warrant
If you missed court because of a mistake, your attorney can probably have
the warrant quashed. However, the longer you ignore the warrant, the more
likely it is that you will remain in jail until your case is over, or
that you will have to post a large amount of money to remain free on bond.
This is especially true if law enforcement arrests you, rather than you
and your attorney voluntarily going to court to explain the mistake.
As your legal advocate, I will work to have your warrant removed so you
can effectively traverse the legal system without the worry of incarceration.
Trust that I have the experience and know-how to help you through your
legal matter. Warrants can go from a simple matter to very serious in
a swift manner. Don’t be caught off guard if a warrant is issued
for your arrest. Handle the situation as soon as possible with my help.
