Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I research and compose a reply for you.
Call the court and ask to speak to the clerk, because if you got a notice from the court saying you have to be there, the court will be expecting you. You don't want a warrant to issue for your arrest.
Sometimes, the police will write up a ticket but when it's reviewed other issues arise requiring a court appearance. Or it could be a mistake. One way or the other, you need to know for sure and a conversation with the clerk should let you know whether you are on the court calendar after all and whether you can avoid that by simply mailing in a check.
Just checking in to see if you need more help or any clarification of my answer. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
