Ok. Are you asking if you should make arrangements to hand yourself in?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have planned a holiday already, so I want to know that can I leave uk to my holiday and then come back and deal with this?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
You are not subject to bail conditions so you can leave the country. The only issue is that if a warrant for your arrest does exist then you may be stopped at the airport. A safer option might be to make an appointment to attend voluntarily after your holiday. They might not agree to do that so you are taking a risk. It depends on your community ties to this jurisdiction and also upon your history of compliance with the Bail Act but it is a lot safer than just trying to leave and taking the risk of arrest at the airport. Can I clarify anything for you? Jo
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
is there anyway that I can check if there is any arrest warrant exist or not??
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Only for certain by handing yourself in which is not a good idea.You will have to do that in the long run but they will just arrest you immediately if you do that and a warrant exists.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
okay thanks. I think that's all I wanted to know.
