Trying to see how a bench warrant can be lifted. My fiance

trying to see how a bench warrant can be lifted. My fiance received a bench warrant for not showing up to court on 04/17/17 for a child support case. He was in court for another case on 04/17/17. His attorney for his child custody case received this notice for a hearing on 04/17/17. His attorney worked out an agreed order to pay the child support payments. He was under the impression that the hearing for 04/17/17 was a moot point. He has since made 3 child support payments per the agreed order. His attorney is now telling him that he did not hire him to take care of this hearing. His attorney also stated he cannot go in front of the judge for him. Seems everyone is telling my fiance to turn himself in to resolve this matter.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: Tarrant County Texas. Issued 04/17/17 that we know of.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: my fiance has reached out to his current attorney and his attorney cannot or won't do anything.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
