    Answered . The jurisdiction that has the warrant out for your arrest won't tell you until you come in and ask about it. If you call on the phone, they will say they don't give out that information over the phone. If you go in person, they will arrest you. If you hire an attorney, they can usually request a fingerprint card and background check for any of a number of reasons. Once you have your GCIC report printed out, you will know what courts you need to talk to in order to remove the warrants. Some will let you want in to court if its just a failure to appear, others will require you to turn yourself in to the jail. Having an attorney can help smooth the process and ensure that, if you have to go into custody, you spend as little time as possible in jail. Contact an attorney familiar with the jurisdiction in question for the best results.
