Why Is There A Warrant For My Arrest In Kansas City MO?


The most common reason why a warrant is issued for someone’s arrest is because they failed to appear at a required court hearing.  When this happens, the judge will automatically issue a warrant from the bench.  This means that if you get pulled over anytime thereafter, the police officer will very likely take you into custody.  


Sometimes the warrant is a result of you not paying a court fine by a certain date.  For instance, if you got a Kansas City MO speeding ticket fixed recently, there was a fine that the court assessed (and gave you a period of time in which to pay it to the clerk of the court).  If this period of time comes and goes without having paid the fine in full (or if you do not request more time in order to get it done), the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest.

Regardless of the reason for why the Kansas City MO arrest warrant was issued, you really need to get it taken care of!!  Why?  Because once you are arrested, you’ll be hauled off to jail.  And once you are in jail, the only way to get out will be to pay a very large bond (which is a sum of money to the clerk).  Otherwise, you will have to wait it out in a jail cell.

Furthermore, if you were to simply pay the bond that the court requires, you will end up paying through the nose!!  But if you were to hire us instead, we would undoubtedly charge far less!!  Once we get the warrant recalled, our office can then turn our attention to the underlying Kansas City MO traffic ticket (the very thing that lead to the arrest warrant in the first place).  Our goal with regards to the traffic ticket will be to get it reduced down to a non-moving violation.  Why?  Because non-moving violations do not come with any points to your permanent driving record.  No points, no worries about an increase to your automobile insurance!
