Bench Warrant Recall

Warrants come in various forms, but two of the most common are bench warrants and arrest warrants. Although similar, the two have one fundamental difference: bench warrants are issued for individuals who have been found in contempt of court for violating court rules or  fail to appear for court appearances, while arrest warrants are more general as the court issues them for crime suspects. What they have in common is that if one is placed against you, a police officer can arrest you at any time or place. They both can also get withdrawn or recalled and retracted.

The Orlando bench warrant recall lawyers at The Umansky Law Firm can help get you off of the radar of law enforcement. We understand the stress that results from possibly getting arrested at any time. The thought of being detained if you call the police after a car accident or when stuck on the side of the road with car trouble can be overwhelming and inflict great fear. Allow us to take the legal action necessary to get your court-ordered bench warrant nullified.

What a Bench Warrant Recall Means

Bench warrants are often issued to individuals on probation or bail who have failed to fulfill a specified court order but can extend to others as well. A few common instances that would lead to a bench warrant being issued include:

No matter the reason for your bench warrant, an experienced criminal defense lawyer can help you get it recalled. A bench warrant recall results in the reversal of the court’s decision to have you arrested; you will no longer be wanted by law enforcement and no longer have to worry about being stopped and arrested randomly.

The Process of Recalling a Bench Warrant

You will need the legal counsel of a knowledgeable attorney to have a bench warrant recalled. Start off by informing your lawyer on the grounds of your bench warrant. You should also gather and provide him or her with any documentation or background information surrounding the court order. Your attorney must then submit a request to the court for your warrant to be recalled.

If your warrant is for a misdemeanor, we can appear in court on your behalf and argue your case. Warrants can generally be recalled in such cases by simply fulfilling the neglected actions that resulted in your arrest. For felonies, however, you may have to appear in court alongside your lawyer and go through a bit more complex process.
