Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you for using JustAnswer.
The most efficient and most certain way to do this is to file a motion to vacate the arrest warrant in the court in which the warrant was issued.
This would be the court where the charge was brought and originally heard.
You would use the original case number XXXXX to the case (which you can obtain by calling the clerk of court and providing your name).
While this could be handled quickly by a local attorney, you can probably do it yourself.
The motion needs to be in a format similar to the other filing in your case file (e.g. name of court at top, name of parties below that, case number, and a title -- Motion to Vacate Warrant ).
You would then simply ask the court to vacate the warrant based on the fact that it was not properly vacated earlier, upon the dismissal of the charge.
