    Basically, I owe child support and had a court date that i did not go to. There is a continuance scheduled for late January. I just need to know what does bench warrant jurisdiction is reserved mean? Does it mean that there is a warrant out for me right now or does it mean the courts are issuing one? I got the papers in the mail stating bench warrant jurisdiction is reserved.

    Default Bench Warrant

    You aren't explaining it very clearly, but it probably means that (1) a bench warrant has been issued, and (2) the court retains jurisdiction over the underlying issues.

    Default i dont understand

    That is all the paper says. I do understand your reply. I was suppose to show up in court, I didn't go because the paper didn't specify that I HAD to go. I have just received a notice in the mail that states the old court date (that i did not go to) and the new one and that BENCH WARRANT JURISDICTION IS RESERVED!!!!!! It does not say anything else. All I want to know is what does
    BENCH WARRANT JURISDICTION IS RESERVED MEAN!?!
