If you have heard that there is a warrant out for your arrest and that the police are looking for you, acting responsibly and fast is the best thing that you can do. If you know that you have to turn yourself in, or what the issue is that you are dealing with, you want to consult a legal professional. Here are some of the things that you should do while you make the plan to turn yourself in and as you prepare for the best results.
Contact a Lawyer
Contact a lawyer to let them know about the warrant, the alleged crime, and that you will be turning yourself in. You can quickly consult with the lawyer on the case so that you will be prepared to turn yourself in and so they can meet you down at the police station to provide a statement, or the lawyer will handle things for you. This is the first thing that you want to do. If you are unsure if you have a warrant or not, you can receive verification from your attorney.
Find a Bail Bondsman
You may want to have a bail bonds service run your credit, or give them your credit card or account information, so that you are prepared to set bail on your own before you turn yourself in. This way you aren't delayed while you are trying to get out, and you will have a bondsman that is already working with you and can get you the funds right away.
Arrange What's Needed
You want to arrange time away from work if it's needed and let people know where you will be. You want to keep the matter private if you can, but you want to be sure that your employer, family, or people that will be looking for you know where you will be in advance. This reduces stress and confusion during that time, and it can help with pet care, childcare, and other obligations.
There are so many different issues that can arise when you are dealing with a case you don't know the details of and when you are told that there is a warrant out for your arrest. You will need to get with a lawyer, make arrangements with a bail bondsman, and make sure that your finances and other arrangements are in order so you aren't stressing even more while in jail.Share
