I have a warrant for my arrest and I now have a warrant due to failure to show child support office had wrong address so i didn't receive the letter to show I know i am behind and still going to turn myself in like advised but what do i need to do to get out of jail once I turn myself in
Get yourself to the correct courthouse ASAP and ask to see the judge. Explain what happened. Mistakes happen--it's all about how you handle them moving forward. Better still, retain an attorney who practices in that county to appear with you and possibly for you.

You need to speak with an attorney immediately. He or she can find out if there is a purge amount set that would allow you to be released once that money is paid. It is typical for you to be brought in front of a judge within a day or so to address the warrant issue once you turn yourself in. Make sure you have an attorney for that hearing.
