I have a warrant out of collin county, but I am living in San Antonio. Bond was set at $2000 for class A misdemeanor viloation of completing probation. I am hoping to get married in a month. By time i have money for the bond it will be 2 weeks till my wedding. I am terrified i cant make this happen, and we had to speed up the wedding do to my fathers health. He is going to pass soon and wanted to walk me down the isle. Really need a solid anwser, or even number to reach someone.
If a bond is set, you don't necessarily have to be transferred to Collin County if you turn yourself in in Bexar County. You may have a problem, however, in getting a bond company in San Antonio to post a bond on a Collin County case. If you are gong to post a cash bond, this won't be a problem. I suggest you contact a local attorney in the Metroplex area to insure the bond is set, talk about your case and your options before turning yourself in.
It is a bail bond question, not a lawyer question. If you can find a bondsman that is willing to guarantee your appearance in court 5 hours away, go for it. Easiest thing would be to drive to Collin county, hire a bondsman, pay the bond, and then go back to San Antonio. That's probably going to be cheaper, too.

If there is a bond set by the Judge in Collin County on your MTR, then yes. You should be able to post a bond through the Satellite office which is located in the basement of the Courthouse at 100 Dolorosa Street. However, if there is no bond set then do not turn yourself in. If you don't have a bond set you need to hire an attorney in Collin County to talk to the judge on your behalf and get a bond set.
