Bench Warrants in Texas Criminal Court

Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer Fighting for Your Freedom

Bench warrants are often issued in situations where an individual is held in “contempt of court.”

This means that he or she failed to do something that was required by a court of law, such as:

  • Failing to pay a fine
  • Failing to pay alimony
  • Failing to pay child support

Bench warrants are most often issued in cases where a defendant or other individual fails to appear in court.

At times, a person may be entirely unaware that a bench warrant has been issued in their name until they are being arrested by law enforcement. When a warrant has been issued for your arrest, you may be at risk of being taken into custody anytime and anywhere, including at home, at work or even if you are pulled over while driving.

Your Right to Legal Recourse

Fortunately, you have the right to legal recourse in the face of a bench warrant. It is important that you consult a lawyer as soon as possible, once you have become aware that a warrant has been issued in your name. The wrong thing to do is nothing – to ignore the situation and try to avoid being taken into custody. The worst thing you can do is leave town. Instead, work with a lawyer to confront the situation head on.

You will likely find that the court will be more willing to work with you and help you avoid arrest if you go in and show that you are interested in remedying the situation. Having a skilled Houston bench warrant lawyer at your side at this time will be crucial, as he or she will understand the specific legal procedure that applies and will know what to say to positively represent your case.
