16. What if I missed my first court hearing?

A warrant has probably been issued for your arrest, your bail or bond has been revoked or found insufficient, and new charges for failure to appear may have been filed. You need to make an appearance, preferably through an attorney who will know how to help. If you had a legitimate reason, such as an unexpected hospital stay, an experienced criminal defense lawyer will know who to notify and how to prevent a warrant for your arrest from being issued if one has not been issued yet. If there was no legitimate excuse, an attorney can help you arrange a self surrender and release to prevent an unexpected, lengthy stay in jail.
