A Waxahachie ticket warrant can be a big problem, but it doesn't have to be. We can immediately lift your warrant and handle your traffic ticket case to a conclusion. I'm attorney Todd E. Tkach. Part of our law practice includes traffic ticket defense, including the warrants that frequently accompany them. Our practice is not limited to Waxahachie ticket warrants. We represent people in all municipal courts in North Texas and beyond for all types of tickets.
If you currently have a Waxahachie ticket warrant for your arrest, you could be arrested at any time and taken to jail. Maybe you forgot to handle a recent Waxahachie traffic ticket, or you have outstanding warrants from traffic tickets you received many years ago. Those Waxahachie ticket warrants won't just go away. End the constant worrying about whether your're going to get pulled over on your way to work, or just to run a quick errand. Or even worse, you get arrested at your home while relaxing for the evening. Stop the madness and call attorney Todd E. Tkach now for your free consultation.
Trying to resolve outstanding Waxahachie ticket warrants on your own is not a good idea. There are only a few options, and likely only one is good. You could just go pay off all of your warrants. There are multiple problems with this option. First, by paying off the warrant, you are pleading guilty to the underlying charge, which means it goes on your permanent record. If that was the only consequence, it wouldn't be so bad, but it's not. A conviction usually means a high fine amount, increased automobile insurance rates, points on your driving record and perhaps surcharges from the Department of Public Safety. Another option for your Waxahachie ticket warrant is to wait to be arrested and sit in jail until the judge determines that you have served enough time to satisfy your outstanding fines and court costs. Very few people would consider this as a viable option. You could also post your own cash bond to lift your warrant. However, that can be very costly upfront, sometimes costing several hundred or even over a thousand dollars. Additionally, you still have to go to court to resolve the underlying ticket. If you fail to appear for court, the court keeps your cash and issues another warrant for your arrest.
In most cases, the best option is to pay attorney Todd E. Tkach a small fee to post an attorney bond to lift your Waxahachie ticket warrant and handle your ticket to a desirable conclusion. That means that you get to keep your cash and take advantage of an experienced criminal defense attorney, who can protect your wallet and your driving record. Stop worrying and start calling attorney Todd E. Tkach to solve your problem.
Types of Waxahachie Ticket Warrants
Generally, there are two types of Waxahachie ticket warrants for municipal citations; Alias warrants and Capias 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 Waxahachie ticket 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 Waxahachie ticket 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 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.
Waxahachie Ticket 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 ticket warrant roundups. What is a ticket warrant roundup? This is when cities and jurisdictions devise and implement plans to actively pursue the arrest of anyone who has outstanding ticket warrants for traffic citations. However, some jurisdictions don’t bother with ticket warrant roundups, but rather have a year –round program to actively arrest anyone with outstanding ticket 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 Waxahachie ticket warrants who were arrested during routine traffic stops, at work or at home. Law enforcement officers do not discriminate when it comes to outstanding warrants. They will show up at the homes and/or work places of anyone who has outstanding Waxahachie ticket 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.
