I have a court mandated class I am supposed to have

Customer Question
Hi there. I have...

Hi there. I have a court mandated class I am supposed to have completed by Sep 29th. I may not be able to complete the course until Oct 6th. Is there a way to get an extension before a warrant for my arrest is put out

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?

Iowa. The warrant won't be issued until Spe 29th if I don't have proof of completing the class

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

I have not

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.
