Have an Addison Warrant for Your Arrest?
Addison warrants are no problem for us! We can post an attorney bond to lift (remove) the Addison warrant for your arrest and set your case for a court hearing.
Has an Addison warrant for your arrest already been issued? If so, you could be arrested and taken to jail. Whether you simply forgot to take care of a recent traffic ticket before the deadline passed, or you have outstanding Addison warrants from months, or even years ago, we can take care of them all. Call the Law Office of Todd E. Tkach now for your free consultation.
After you receive a traffic ticket in Addison, you only have a few days to either pay the ticket or set it for a court hearing. If you fail to do either, an Addison warrant for your arrest will be issued. In that event, you cannot resolve that traffic ticket with the court unless and until you do one of the following two things: 1) pay the maximum fine amount for the ticket; or 2) post a cash bond in an amount equal to the maximum fine amount plus court costs! Neither of those options to lift an Addison warrant is advisable. If you simply pay the ticket, not only are you paying the highest fine possible for that particular ticket, but you are convicted of the charge, which means it will go on your driving record. Posting a cash bond to lift an Addison warrant can also be problematic. The amount of the cash bond will be equal to the maximum possible fine for that ticket, plus an additional amount for court costs. The cash necessary to lift that Addison warrant will be several hundred dollars. The Court holds your cash until you resolve your traffic ticket, which could take several months.
Let me suggest an alternative. Keep your cash and protect your driving record! For a nominal fee, hire Todd E. Tkach to post an attorney bond, lift the Addison warrant and go to court to fight for a dismissal of the traffic ticket.
Types of Addison Warrants
Generally, there are two types of Addison warrants for municipal citations; Alias Addison warrants and Capias Addison warrants:
Alias Addison Warrants
Alias Addison warrants go into effect after you receive a traffic citation if before your appearance date, you fail to either: 1) pay your traffic citation; or 2) request a court hearing. After the Addison warrant is issued, if you are stopped, for any reason, you are subject to arrest. Are you in this situation now? Do you have outstanding Alias Addison warrants? Call attorney Todd E. Tkach now! We can post an attorney bond to lift the Addison warrant for your arrest and set your case for hearing. At the hearing, we strive for a dismissal of the charge(s) against you. If a dismissal can’t be obtained, we’ll aggressively negotiate to obtain the best possible result for you.
Capias Addison Warrants
Capias Addison warrants are issued when you fail to comply with a plea agreement that you entered into regarding a previous citation. It may be that you agreed to pay a certain fine within a certain time and to not get any other traffic citations within a certain time period. Failure to comply with any part of that agreement will result in a Capias Addison warrant being issued for your arrest. In this situation, it’s probably too late for us to be able to help. You must either pay the fine or remain subject to arrest at any time.
Addison Warrant roundups
From time to time, anywhere from two (2) to four (4) times per year, most cities and municipalities in the Dallas and Ft. Worth metroplex conduct “Warrant roundups.” What is a Warrant roundup? This is when cities and jurisdictions devise and implement plans to actively pursue the arrest of anyone who has outstanding warrants for traffic citations. However, some jurisdictions don’t bother with “Warrant roundups,” but rather have a year –round program to actively arrest anyone with outstanding warrants from that jurisdiction. If you think this can’t happen to you, think again! Many times, we have posted attorney bonds to bail people out of jail who had outstanding Addison warrants who were arrested during routine traffic stops, at work or at home. Law enforcement officers do not discriminate when it comes to outstanding Addison warrants. They will show up at the homes and/or workplaces of anyone who has outstanding Addison warrants, and arrest them. Don’t let this happen to you!

Getting Yourself Arrested for a Ticket Warrant Is Expensive
Getting arrested on an outstanding warrant for an unpaid ticket is the most expensive way to resolve your traffic ticket! First, you will have to bond yourself out of jails with a cash bond for the full amount owed. Second, you will face the highest amount of the fine, known as the "window rate." Thirdly, you will face additional fees for court costs and the collection expense of arresting you. Fourth, if you were pulled over while driving and arrested, your car might be impounded and you might face towing and impound fees to get your car back. Finally, you could also face significant State of Texas surcharges. Plus, you will loose more money from the resulting time away from work, plus the embarrassment of being arrested. This is the worst and most expensive of all possible outcomes.
If you have one or more outstanding warrants for your arrest for unpaid traffic tickets, there are much more favorable outcomes possible that will cost less and eliminate additional the hassle.
