Warrant for my Arrest in Florida What are my Options?
If you know that there is a warrant for your arrest then your first option is to surrender to the jail. You just show up and surrender and then the clerk of court will be notified and they will set a court date. That can take 2 days to 3 weeks. There are other options:
- Your attorney can file a motion to vacate or lift the capias/warrant,
- Or your attorney can file a Motion for In Court surrender wherein you basically show up to court.
These two options are discretionary and the judge will make the decision. Different judges have different rules. If you do not try then you will never know so discuss it with your attorney. This is general information and no attorney client privledge exists by viewing this video. Discuss your facts with your attorney or contact your local attorney for advice on your case. Roger P. Foley.
