You can call the court to see if there's a warrant out. You can ask them what the outstanding balance is. Yes, you can have someone to go in and pay the balance for you. Then, after that, you can turn yourself in on the warrant. If the only outstanding thing you had was unpaid fines and costs, then you should not have to worry about going to jail.

Okay, well some courts do have a policy of not giving the information over the phone. What they meant, however, was for you to hire a local attorney to help you. The attorney would file an appearance on your behalf and then find out the details. You don't need an attorney; however, because the outcome will be the same.
It's up to you to decide if you're going to pay money to an attorney or put that money towards your fines. If you have an idea of how much money you owe, take that with you when you go to court.
