Bench Warrants in Hillsborough County Court

A bench warrant, also known as an arrest warrant, or a Capias, is issued when you miss a mandatory court date before a County or Circuit Court Judge.

If a bench warrant is issued for your arrest, you will be subject to arrest at any given time by law enforcement, whose job is to find you and hail you into jail before the court and judge you issued the warrant.You can only be released if you post a cash or surety bond in the amount ordered by the Judge.

Tampa Warrants attorney Maj Vasigh understands that mistakes and emergencies come up in our lives. If you have an outstanding warrant in Hillsborough County, Pinellas County, Polk County, Manatee County, or Sarasota County, call (813) 800-1111 now.

Tampa Warrants attorney Maj Vasigh can many times quash the bench warrant and sometimes even waive your appearance before the court, saving you the money from paying the bail bondsman or posting a cash bond.

Does a warrant ever expire? No. (generally).

Do you have to come back to Tampa to face and surrender to jail for the warrant? Not necessarily! I cam often times save you a trip back here.
