my fiancée was 18 years old and was drunk driving without a license . he went to court and was fined but at the times was not making enough to live and with his family was moving all over and ended up going back to New York for the next 8 years . he us now 26 and wants to fix this and pay everything off so he can live a normal life with me and our son . what are the chances of him getting arrested if he goes there and pay his fines
He should call the municipal court and explain the situation. He should be able to go directly to the courthouse and pay the fines. If he needs to be placed on a payment plan he will probably have to appear before the judge. An attorney can take care of all of this for without risking arrest.
More information is needed. You want to call the court and find out the status of the case. there is likely a warrant with a bail attached. he may be able to post the bail and take care of the matter. this is best done by an attorney. Judge Webber is a good guy. Call with more information.
Your fiance probably has a bench warrant for him in the town where he had a violation. First he should get an attorney, who would contact the court and get the run down. I would avoid going into New Jersey because if he has the bad luck of being stopped for any traffic violation even burnt out tail light, he will probably be arrested on the spot
This answer does not create an attorney/client relationship, and is not intended to do so.
If it has been several years, then he probably has a warrant for his arrest. He should call the court and find out how much bail the warrant is for and whether there are any special terms. He should then have someone drive him to NJ, to any court, and pay the bail. They will give him a new court date on which he should return with the entire balance, plus a few hundred for contempt.
