    Default Resolving Bench Warrant for Failure to Appear

    My question involves an arrest warrant from the State of: New Hampshire

    Had to go to court for Collection on Credit Card, missed first court date and file motion for periodic payments. Judge denied and set new court date. Missed that court date. New court date set and missed that one, stupidity on my part.
    Got a Bench Warrant issued with $500 Bail on personal Recognizance. Trying to find out how I can resolve the bench warrant and get new court date without getting arrested. My understanding is if I go to the police department, like the court clerk suggested, I am getting arrested and posting bail even if I am not spending any time in jail. I do want a new court date seeing as how I can not pay the judgement from the original collection in full.
    Any help?

    If you want any hope of not being arrested, contact an attorney in your area to negotiate the terms of your surrender on your behalf.

    I doubt that you can proceed without being processed by the police department. Consult a local criminal defense lawyer.
