My boyfriend just found out he has a warrant for a unpaid traffic ticket. He has a job offer but they cannot hire him until the warrant is cleared up which also means he cannot pay the ticket until ge starts this job. We called the court today and they said he had to pay 20% of the ticket to get the warrant lifted but again no job equals no money.
He needs to come up with the 20% and get the warrant lifted. It is that straightforward, there aren't other options.

Most likely not. Some courts used to give jail time in lieu of fines, but that's not normally an option anymore.
Please note, my answers to questions do NOT create an attorney/client relationship. Only after a written agreement is entered into between the parties is an attorney/client relationship created. Additionally, the responses posted here are done so on limited information and should not be fully relied upon without an in person consultation where the entire case is reviewed and discussed in detail.
