Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.

I am sorry to hear about this situation. What would happen is if the warrant is quashable, someone in your situation would quash it by putting down a bond, and would get a court hearing a few weeks down the line to appear in Court. You can do this by calling any bail bond company in the area - most of them are 24 hours a day.

However many times, if this is the first warrant for an arrest (and not for missing court), the warrant may not be quashable. If so, someone in your situation would have to turn themselves in and be processed. But if one calls a bail bond agency ahead of time, they can pre-arrange the paperwork so once you are processed, bond would be posted. So then one leaves the facility and awaits the court date.

Let me know if you need a list of bail bond agencies (and if so, what county of Oregon).

how can i determine if my warrant is quasble and i a list of bondsmen would be great
Expert:  Ely replied 11 months ago.

The bail bond company will tell you. Simply tell them your name, DOB, SSN, and they'll tell you what warrant is out, and how and if it may be quashed. What county is this in?

the first number was disconnected and the second didnt sound like a company, i talked with a local bondsmen on google and they all say oregon i say oregon is a no bail state? and all bonding is handle internally by their department?
Expert:  Ely replied 11 months ago.

Oh apologies. OR is one the four states which has strict rules on bail bonds. In this state, the defendants, their friends or family often can post a 10 percent deposit on the entire bail amount to secure the accused's release. So one can call the court and ask if a bond is available. Or better yet, have your attorney call for you when you retain one.

right so thats what i was thinking initially was to retain a attorney and have him find out the details and turn my self in with the necessary funds in hope of a low bond
Expert:  Ely replied 11 months ago.

Right. But technically a bond can be put down even without an attorney. However calling the court by one's self to find out the information is not a good idea; best to use an attorney.
