Warrant Dismissal Attorney El Paso Tx
Many people have received a traffic ticket at least once in their life time. And if you are one of those people, you know the headache that comes with it. You have to take time off from your busy schedule to make it to court or pay high fines. Sometimes you even forget about the court date and it results in you getting a warrant out for your arrest and more fines.
When a citation turns into a warrant you accumulate warrant fees on top of your ticket. In some counties they won’t let you fight the ticket without a traffic ticket lawyer since it has become a warrant. Some counties even have surety bonds that have to be paid in order to go back to court for the ticket. When you are trying to remove a warrant you need to find out if you can do it alone or if you need to hire a warrant dismissal (recall) attorney. You also need to figure out if it’s a commitment warrant or a regular warrant.
With a commitment warrant in some point you went to court and made arrangements to either pay it or to take a defensive driving course, but you failed to keep up with those arrangements. When you have this kind of warrant you can no longer fight it to get dismissed. A traffic ticket attorney can remove the warrant and ask the judge for a 90-day payment plan so you can pay off the ticket.
With a regular warrant you never went to court so you can still fight it. A lawyer will lift the warrant up and depending on the county will file papers for the surety bond. Once that is done they will go to court to try and get the ticket dismissed. A dismissal is possible but never guaranteed. Depending on the kind of citation and if you currently have a driver’s license you can be granted a defensive driving course. By taking that course they ticket will come off your record and there will be no point deduction on your license. If you don’t have a driver’s license you can get your fines reduced.
It is very important to take care of your warrants because you are at risk of getting arrested and that will only bring more problems in the long run. By hiring a lawyer to help you with your warrants you can save time and money, and if they get your ticket dismissed you will avoid surge charges from the state and point being deducted from your license.
