    Answered . Here is another reason to take care of the warrant. Murphy's Law of Warrants states that warrants will always be served and executed at the most inopportune possible time. Think, honeymoon, brand new, great job, date with the girl of your dreams, child's grade school graduation and always at a time when you do not have the bond money on you. By acting proactively, you get to decide when you are facing the warrant and you can go armed with bond money and, if you wish, a lawyer.
