Fort Lauderdale Warrants Attorney
Ignoring a warrant is an invitation to be arrested
Chances are that if you have not shown up for a mandatory court appearance, have violated your parole or have neglected to pay a ticket, you know it. And so do the police. If you have an outstanding warrant, law enforcement can and is likely to arrest you on the spot and bring you to appear in court. What’s more, you can be arrested on the road, in your home or even at your place of business. But you do have options. At the law office of Kevin J. Kulik, P.A., we help resolve warrants so you can avoid the expense and humiliation of being arrested and incarcerated. If you have received a Notice of Active Arrest Warrant from a bail bond company, if you know that your failure to appear is about to catch up with you or if you have any reason to believe that a warrant has been issued for you, get immediate, experienced legal representation. As criminal defense attorneys who are familiar with the courts in Fort Lauderdale, Broward County and communities throughout South Florida, we can argue your case or negotiate favorable terms — but only if you contact us as soon as possible.

Resolving all types of warrants
The best way to address a warrant is to meet it head on. This does not mean you should go it alone: Kevin Kulik can help you by determining whether there is a legitimate outstanding warrant and whether there is a bond attached to the warrant or if it is a no-bond warrant, meaning that you cannot get out of jail before appearing before a judge.
The most common types of warrants in Fort Lauderdale and throughout Florida include:
- Bench warrants: This type of warrant, also called a capias warrant, is issued by a judge when you have willfully disobeyed a court order and are therefore in contempt of court. Most commonly, this means that you have failed to appear (FTA) as ordered, have failed to pay a ticket or child support or have disregarded a subpoena.
- Arrest warrants: If the courts have determined that there is probable cause implicating you for a crime, an arrest warrant is issued. It is considered an outstanding warrant until you are brought into custody by the police. Arrest warrants are often issued based on violation of probation (VOP) and should be handled with the assistance of an experienced Florida warrants lawyer.
