I have a warrant out for my arrest in Texas for a probation violation. I had to move to georgia due to family problems last second and can’t afford to go back to texas to clear this up. If i were to contact a lawyer is there anyway to clear the warrant without name going back to Texas?
No. You will need to return to Texas and post a bond so that you can then go to court and address the matter. You can hire a local lawyer ahead of time to give you better guidance. Turning yourself in to address the issue is much better than getting arrested and extradited.
Ms. Henley gives you excellent advice. You have to deal with the warrant - in person. Start by hiring an attorney and laying the groundwork to surrender on the warrant rather than getting arrested and going through extradition and being incarcerated throughout. Use AVVO's "Find a lawyer" to help you here in Texas in the county where the warrant issued
Ms. Henley and Mr. Andreadis are correct. Best to hire that lawyer sooner than later, as it's only a matter of time before you are arrested. Best of Luck!

I was able to do this for someone recently, but those were very specific circumstances. You need to contact an attorney in Dallas to discuss the specifics of your case. They will be able to advise you of your options from there.
Macy Jaggers's answer to a legal question on Avvo does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Please consult an attorney who practices criminal law in your jurisdiction for the most accurate legal advice.
