What are the different types of warrants?
Various types of warrants exist which are issued by criminal courts for specific purposes. These include arrest warrants, bench warrants, and search warrants. An arrest warrant may be issued by the court when it has been demonstrated through enough evidence that there is probable cause that an individual has committed a crime. The individual named in the arrest warrant may not even know that the warrant has been issued. Under these circumstances, law enforcement could show up at your home and arrest you in front of your family, friends, and neighbors.
If you fail to appear in court for a scheduled court appearance, you may be named in a bench warrant. This type of warrant is an order for your arrest, giving law enforcement the authority to pick you up and bring you before the judge to answer for the charges connected with the warrant. Bench warrants may be issued when you fail to comply with a court order or requirement or fail to appear. In the case of any type of warrant, you should not ignore it but contact the South Florida warrants attorney at the firm to get the help you need. He can help negotiate with the judge on your behalf, present the proper legal arguments and explanations and work towards a favorable resolution.
