Dallas Bench Warrant Lawyers

Representing Clients throughout Northern Texas from McKinney, Fort Worth, Denton & Austin

If you have a bench warrant outstanding for your arrest, there are a few things you may be asking yourself.

What is a bench warrant?

A bench warrant is an arrest warrant issued by a judge directing law enforcement to apprehend that person wherever they are found. Typically, bench warrants are issued by a judge when a person has violated a court order and is, as such, in contempt of court.

The warrant does not allege that the person is being accused of a crime, but it is by its nature, alleging that the person is being accused of an offense against the court itself.

Failing to pay court costs, failure to appear for a hearing or a court date, failing to pay child support as directed by the court, or failing to appear for jury duty or not honoring a subpoena to appear as a witness are the most common reasons for having a bench warrant issued against you. As you can see, these are all examples of violating a court ordered duty. If you are picked up on a bench warrant, you will be taken into custody and taken before the judge who issued it at the court's convenience to answer for your failure to comply with its directives.
