If a Lewisville warrant for your arrest gets issued, you have a few options. You could just do nothing and eventually get arrested and "sit out" your fine and warrant fee. With that option, you'll likely be in jail for a few days. The Court normally requires at least 1 day in jail for each $100.00 in outstanding fines and fees. There are other options.

Why you need a Lewisville warrant attorney

You could just go pay the ticket. The good part about doing that is that it would lift the Lewisville warrant for your arrest, but it's still a very bad idea. Paying the ticket means that you entered a plea of guilty, which results in a conviction. Convictions have several negative consequences, including, higher auto insurance rates, Texas Department of Public Safety ("DPS") "points" on your driver's license, DPS surcharges and a possible driver's license suspension. For those reasons, simply paying off your Lewisville warrant is not advisable. You could post your own cash bond. But, the cash necessary for that bond will likely be several hundred dollars, and depending on the charge, could exceed a thousand dollars. It includes the fine amount, warrant fees and any collection fees. And, after you post the bond, you still have to go to court to resolve your Lewisville ticket. If you fail to appear for court, you lose your cash bond.

Lewisville Warrant

Types of Lewisville Warrants

Generally, there are two types of Lewisville warrants for municipal citations; Alias warrants and Capias warrants:

Alias Warrants

Alias 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 Lewisville 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 warrants? Call attorney Todd E. Tkach now! We can post an attorney bond to lift the Lewisville 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 Warrants

Capias 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 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.

Lewisville 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 Lewisville warrants who were arrested during routine traffic stops, at work or at home. Law enforcement officers do not discriminate when it comes to outstanding Lewisville warrants. They will show up at the homes and/or workplaces of anyone who has outstanding Lewisville 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.
