Bench Warrants

New York City Bench Warrant Attorney

Why are NYC Bench Warrants Issued?

A New York bench warrant is most often issued for a failure to appear in court. This is a formal court document that allows for the immediate arrest of an individual. The primary purpose of a bench warrant is to apprehend an individual and bring him/her back to the court where he or she can face their criminal charges.

Additional reasons a bench warrant may be issued include the following:

  • Failure to pay a court-ordered fine
  • Failure to complete counseling or rehabilitation
  • Any other action which is considered to place an individual in contempt of court.

As experienced NYC bench warrant lawyers, we understand that the wrong thing to do is to ignore a warrant and hope you don't get arrested. It is best to work with professional legal counsel and face the situation head-on. Voluntarily going to court shows that you are serious about handling the situation and may mean that the judge will be more willing to negotiate or show you some leniency.
