I missed my court date for my diversion and I don't know how to get a new one or if Im still even able to do it please help this is the first time anything like this has happened to me.
First, do you have an attorney? If so contact him right now.
If you do not contact the clerk of the court to see if you can come in to set aside the a warrant and get a new court date. Then follow those instructions. You might need an attorney now to salvage the diversion. This is probably manageable if you take care of it immediately.
This answer is intended to provide general information about the justice system. It does not provide legal advice nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. It does not provide the basis for making decisions about a course of action. Legal advice requires more communication and information than is possible in this format. Many important considerations and factors need to be investigated and discussed before an attorney could give legal advice about this issue. Before making any decisions about a course of action readers are strongly encouraged to contact a lawyer and secure an attorney-client relationship. Readers must also understand that this format does not provide for confidential communication.
