Good Morning

The warrant has been issued because you failed to go to court.

What the warrant means is that the police have the right to arrest you and hold you in custody until the next appearance date and take you to court.

You will have to go to court on the next occasion or you will be arrested.

You should contact the court and find out when the next date is. If the warrant has a date that the police will attend and arrest you you will have to get the matter back into court before that date and request that the court withdraw it and give an undertaking that you will appear.

You should get your self a solicitor to represent you.

If you wish to have a phone call to discuss this in more detail please elect a call or I can send you a request.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Let me know if I have answered your question today.

Regards

Leon

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
