    Answered . They usually wait for a bus to fill up. Is it a child support purge? Contempt? Technically the warrant isn't executed until the individual reaches their destination where the warrant is active. There is no real time limit to transfer of which I am aware.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . You do not say what type of "purge". Many of these are civil in nature. Some require the doing of an act. Some require the payment of money. If this is a money purge, then the easiest way out is to pay the amount and obtain an immediate release. If the purge was issued without notice, then you may be able to challenge it on that basis. Any way you cut it it would be best to have a lawyer.
