Contact a lawyer to help you. A lot depends on which courts. If you go in on your own they will likely require bail on both cases plus a payment of the FTA. An attorney can likely get you the abstract and set the cases for trial without depositing bail. The temporary abstract itself costs $10.00 each, but that is the least of your problems.
Feel free to contact us for a consultation. Iannelli & Associates, 949 729-3171 This answer does not constitute legal advice and no attorney client relationship is created. Every case has many facts which are different and distinctly theirs, make sure that you understand this is general information and it would be advisable to constact a competent lawyer for personal legal advice.
Do you have 2 separate cases with fta's or a double fta. An attorney can help you with the 2 separate cases. Double fta's are a big problem in LA County Courts. You can get a court date- but will not get holds lifted unless you post bail.- and even then it can be a challenge.
You should have an attorney appear so you don't have to post bail on the cases. Then the attorney can ask the Judge to order an abstract. That's really the only way to have it done.
