i have a warrant for vop for fraud and petty theft in florida i live in a different state i am willing to take care of the matter in court. I spoke with a couple attorneys that said that they will set a motion for it to be recalled so i can show up in court.How long will that process take because i will not have the money to pay for an attorney until tax time.I do not want to come back in fl until i no longer have a warrant in the system.
Criminal Defense Attorney
This really depends on the judge. Some judges won't even consider recalling a warrant and will require you to turn yourself into the jail. Others will allow your attorney to set the motion within a day or two. And still others will set the hearing, but might make you wait several weeks for a court date.
DUI / DWI Attorney
Probably not the answer you are looking for but it depends on the judge. An attorney has a few options including a motion to recall or withdraw the warrant, setting the case for a turn in date with the understanding that the case will be resolved prior to being taken into custody or a plea and waiver/ plea in abstentia for misdemeanor cases. Some judges want the case resolved others want some flesh for not appearing. Your history also can be a factor. Contact a local attorney and they will get it resolved by the best available method. You need to hire an attorney because the public defender is not available prior to incarceration.
