Carrollton Warrants Lifted
There are a number of ways to get a warrant lifted in Carrollton Municipal Court. However, some methods are better than others.

If after reading this article you would like to discuss your case with a legal professional we invite you to CHAT WITH US ONLINE, fill out our warrant questionnaire or call us to discuss your individual case.
Paying Off Warrants In Carrollton
Paying off warrants is probably one of the biggest mistakes we see clients make. The Code of Criminal Procedure Article 27.14(c) gives Carrollton Municipal Court the authority to count your payment of the warrant as an admission of guilt. This admission is then reported to DPS as a conviction. Once a conviction is entered against you, there is no real way to have it reversed. This is where the real problems begin to occur. For example, if you paid off a “no insurance” ticket that was in warrant, that citation will now cause your driver’s license to be suspended indefinitely until you (1) provide Texas DPS with a pre-paid SR22 insurance policy (2) pay an annual surcharge of $260.00 per year for 3 years totaling $780.00. This is why we consider paying off warrants the worst possible method to resolve warrants in Carrollton, Texas.
Hiring A Bail Bond Company For Warrants
Bail bond companies have their place in the legal system. However, that place is not for traffic ticket warrants. The problem with hiring a bail bond company for traffic ticket warrants is that they do absolutely nothing to earn the fee you pay other than play the middle man in the warrant lifting process. Specifically, if you hire a bail bond company, they will normally charge about $150.00 to get you out of jail. From there they do the following:
- Call an attorney to file all the necessary paperwork to get you out of jail
- That attorney is then paid a small portion of the money you paid the bail bond company to “run the bond.”
- The bail bond company then pockets the rest of the money
- Once you are released, the attorney that got you out of jail will require you to pay more money
All of this hassle, and you will end up having to pay more money once you get out of jail for the lawyer to help you with the case? This is the normal course of business for most bond companies in the Carrollton area. Further, most people do not realize that by hiring a bail bond company, you are actually hiring a lawyer. This puts a defendant at a disadvantage in actually choosing a lawyer they trust. We can guarantee that the main reason the bail bond company hired the lawyer they chose was not for their experience or legal aptitude. It was for the competitive rate they charge to increase the profit margin of the bail bond company.
Hiring A Lawyer To Lift A Warrant
When a lawyer is hired directly to lift a warrant for tickets in Carrollton Municipal Court, it is the best of both worlds. You get the benefit of what a bail bond company provides without the middle man, which means that all of your hard earned money goes to the person you want to represent you in court after you are released from jail or the warrant is removed. Further, the attorney will act as a buffer between you and Carrollton so that you driving record can be defended and your driving privileges protected. There are so many ways to get taken advantage of when dealing with a warrant that you have to be careful. You also have to understand what can and cannot be done after the warrant is lifted. An experienced attorney will be able to guide you through the complex traffic laws to insure you have a solid understanding of what must be done to keep out of jail and out of further legal trouble.
