What to Do If There Is a Warrant for Your Arrest

If you know there is an active warrant for your arrest, it is best not to ignore your situation. Regardless of whether the arrest warrant is issued out of Oklahoma County, Cleveland County, McClain County or Garvin County, with the assistance of an Oklahoma criminal defense lawyer, the process of answering to the warrant will be much smoother.

Got a Warrant for Your Arrest? What Next?

Typically, you will receive some sort of notification, such as a letter, if there is a warrant out for your arrest. This does not necessarily mean that you will be immediately dragged off in front of your family and friends. In fact, there are several steps you can take that will make this process go much more smoothly.

Consider taking these steps:

  1. Hire a Lawyer
  2. Get a Bail Bondsman
  3. Make Arraignments to Surrender on the Warrant

Often, turning yourself in on a warrant with the assistance of an attorney results in a reduced bond. Because of your cooperation and attention to the matter, you may even be released on your own recognizances without being required to pay money for a bond.

Not only is there usually the benefit of monetary savings, but taking care of the warrant on your own terms and avoiding being arrested and taken to jail is probably the greatest advantage to facing your situation and taking action.
