A waiver of arraignment is the document used by the defendant to waive your right to arraignment. This means the document states that you, the defendant understands the charges against you and you will appear in court to face those charges. This document must be assigned by you and your attorney entering your plea (guilty, not guilty, plea bargain, etc.) It must be submitted to the court n advance and signed by the court in some cases. If this is done, your lawyer can appear for arraignment. Hope this helps and appreciate your great rating after reading my answer so I will be paid for my work. Thank you.
