Good evening. When you miss a subpoena court date, the judge on the case may or may not issue a warrant. The attorney who issued the subpoena can ask the court for a contempt of court order. It would then be in the judge's discretion to issue an arrest warrant. You should contact the court or appear at the judge's courtroom to state in your defense why you did not answer the subpoena. Even if it is a civil case, the court can still issue a warrant for your arrest. If it is a criminal subpoena you missed I would definitely hire an attorney before I appear in court tomorrow.
