Got a Warrant? Can It Be Removed?

Posted by Corey L. Scott | Nov 28, 2021 | 0 Comments

So, you have just discovered that you have an outstanding warrant. Understandably, you might have a few questions! One of the first questions you may be asking yourself is can a warrant be recalled?

The good news is that the answer is yes!

When someone has an outstanding warrant and wishes to have it recalled, they will typically be required to appear in court. During this court appearance they will need to come before a judge and explain why they missed their original court date, and request that the warrant be recalled. If your request is granted, the original warrant will be reversed, and your case will then be set back in order.  

If you are fortunate enough to get an experienced attorney, this attorney may be able to file a motion on your behalf to recall the warrant. If the courts do choose to grant this motion, the warrant will then be recalled, and a future court date will be set. You will no longer have to live with the weight of this warrant hanging over your head, while also avoiding the potential shame and humility that comes with being arrested at your home or at your work.

If you are in a situation like this and have an active warrant, there is no need to panic. Get on the phone and call an experienced attorney right away. They can  discuss with you the nature of the warrant, the likelihood of getting it recalled, and how they can help you get that accomplished.

If you have questions about this or anything else, feel free to reach out. As always, I am always more than happy to help.
