How can I take care of my out of state bench warrant?

I had to go to court for speeding 84+ mph. I got my license suspended, community service, and had to take a drivers ed class and $500 fine. I missed my compliance hearing because i had to move out of state which enabled me to comply as well.

You should hire an attorney in the state where the bench warrant is or you may have to go to the other state if you are trying to take care of it without an attorney.

If you missed a mandatory court appearance it is likely that the court will have issued a warrant for your arrest. Now, your driver's license will be pearmanently suspended until this matter is resolved. You should plan to return to the county where this is pending, go to the court and see what needs to be done to make corrections, even if you are arrested. Otherwise, consider hiring an attorney to resolve this for you.

You may get this resolved though an attorney in your current state of residence or you may need to contact one in the jurisdiction where it happened. Sometimes local attorneys can get better results than one from long distance. You are most likely not going to get your license back until it is taken care of.
